This course is a complement to Fine Art Photography Senior Thesis Studio (CPH 4090) and Photojournalism Senior Studio (CPJ 4090). This course explores issues of photographic voice, precedent and impact in the art world and publishing worlds. Students develop an awareness of the context in which they are making work by addressing contemporary issues through writing and oral presentations, visiting speakers, readings, exhibitions, and critiques with Corcoran faculty and outside experts. An emphasis will be placed on engaged participation and articulate and convincing writing addressing a student's ideas and aspirations in relation to traditions, practices, and discourses of photo-based art and media. This course is designed to assist Fine Art Photography and Photojournalism students in the process of working through a successful Senior Thesis project as well as in developing a well-rounded artistic and photojournalistic practice.
