Hunting and Farming the Photograph
David Hilliard, Andrea Jenkins Wallace
Explore your photographic motivations through a juxtaposition of two distinct image-making approaches: “hunting” (capturing images as they exist in the world) and “farming” (cultivating photos via staged or constructed strategies). Both camps are valid and wide-ranging. The course guides students as they experiment with both practices, including an historical overview, research presentations, short field trips, discussions and readings. Each participant works on an individual project that allows them to explore their conceptual/formal photographic relationship within the concepts of hunting and farming.
