Full Course Description

Over a period of five weeks, students came to know well the magnificent city of Paris with its abundant museums, significant architecture, atmospheric parks and intimate cafes. Paris and its environs were the catalyst for inspiring students of all levels of photography that begin and to continue to develop technical skills and that explore personal visions. In discussions on the work of past and contemporary photographers, in group critiques which investigate "learning how to see" and how to create "good" photographs, and in individual meetings, students were encouraged to respond in unique ways to photographic problems. Using black and white film and the 35mm camera as the primary tools for employing the visual language of art, students processed film and printed in the well-appointed and maintained facility of the Photography Studies in France. The PSF building is located in the 11th arrondisement of Paris near the Bastille. In addition, field trips outside the city were introduced students to the countryside, as well as afford further photographic opportunities. Independent study in photography in Paris impacted on the creative life of a student at any level of photography in immeasurable ways!
