Photography 2 (DESA9011)


In this unit of study, students will have the opportunity to develop creative photographic projects from initial ideas to production of artwork, producing two major photographic series that function successfully at both an aesthetic and a conceptual level. They will have the opportunity to research and experiment with a variety of different ideas and take an experimental approach to photography, trying different techniques and considering which will best serve the intentions of the artwork. Students will be expected to produce a research process journal and report on how a particular artist/s or art movement has informed or influenced their final project/s.
