“The Social Photo: On Photography And Social Media” by Nathan Jurgenson

The Social Photo: On Photography And Social Media” by Nathan Jurgenson

 Frieze Article

"Photos don't just depict the self but are a procedure for self knowledge, a mode of thinking about the self. This identity work is deciding to remember something as quintessentially me, a choice, a performance, memorialized within the frame." -Nathan Jurgenson

FA 381: Weeks 1-5, Theme: Place

As part of FA 381, Intro to Photography, we will be focusing on 3 different themes throughout the semester. During weeks 1-5, while learning basic camera fundamentals and formal / compositional techniques, we will also be focusing on the theme of place. Assignments include a semester long study of a specific place, a "photo" treasure hunt, and more. 

Art 21 currently allows access to all seasons including Sally Mann's segment about the importance of place in her photographic works.

Good Boy Series by Megan Rowe

Mega Rowe Final Project FA382 Intermediate Photography

Megan writes

"What happens to a moment after it is captured by a camera? These moments are gone, never to be lived again. What remains are the reproduced memories on a photograph. Good boy is a series that manipulates memories and gives them new meaning. By using old photographs and applying colored thread, these memories compel the audience to place new meanings to them."
