An in-depth documentary story telling class where students will work photographing and investigating problems facing California and its people as well as finding uplifting stories of its communities, and will try to visually document the causes and affect, issues such as immigration, schools, homelessness, urban sprawl, development, injustice, individual determination etc. You will work throughout the term on one in-depth photo documentary project in class, attempting to reduce a tiny area of the moving world to a set of still images that convey what the viewer needs to know about what you saw. This course will focus on developing a personal style and culminates with a collaborative body of work edited for publication and inclusion in the photo center’s spring 2022 annual Realeyes magazine, and a portfolio presentation of 10-12 final images.
