Photography and The Canadian Imagination (PHOT208-36)

This course is intended to deepen the understanding of Canadian contemporary art photography. The course will include a series of thematic lectures such as such as how Canadian photographers compare to the traditions used by American and Europeans, the prominence of documentary photography and the Canadian relationship to the wilderness. The course uses the text Faking Death: Canadian Art Photography and the Canadian Imagination by Penny Cousineau-Levine as a source of inspiration. Students will examine important aspects of the Canadian identity and imagination through photography. Assignments will be given in response to the weekly readings and lectures. These will be reviewed during in-class critiques and through group discussions. A number of classes will be dedicated to post-production editing using Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop. Bring a camera and notebook to the first class. Prerequisite: a basic understanding of how to use your own camera and how to upload images onto a computer.
