Formulating a Photo Essay

with Jared Moossy

This class will explore with students the fundamentals of formulating a photo essay. There will be a discussion about the social and political relevance of the students intended stories, and what aspects of them students will need to document to convey their chosen story to an audience. This discussion will focus on how they can achieve this practically, as well as photographically. Once students have embarked on their stories there will be daily editing sessions to discuss the direction their work is taking. The aim of the class will be to develop a visual narrative through both personal style and photographic techniques.
