ART-208.A/308.A - The Art of the Photobook

Friday 12:30–3:30


The photography book has emerged as a significant genre for the circulation and exhibition of photography. This course explores the photography book as an art form in and of itself. The study of historical and contemporary photography books will provide a foundation for students to make independently designed books of their own. Over the semester students will develop their photographic ideas and methods through group critiques, and explore elements of bookmaking, including photographic sequence, text, layout, material considerations, and more. The coursework will culminate in the production of a final body of work, printed and bound as a book. Students can use film or digital photography, depending on previous experience. Students must have a film or digital camera, preferably with manual controls. Four hours per week plus extensive independent work outside of the classroom. Four semester hours.
