Taught By: Tarah Douglas

Section: A

CRN: 2831

Credits: 3

This course explores the interdependence and mutual influence of photography and cinema. Through screenings of key films, students will explore cinema that directly and indirectly influences the look, genre, style, and content of historical and contemporary photography. Lectures will contrast notable photographic images with those films that the photographs reference historically, stylistically, thematically, or through the use of light. This course enables students to think critically about the construction of an image, which is a narrative strategy central to fashion photography, fine art photography, and contemporary forms of photojournalism. Film genres covered in the course include: art films, film noir, documentary, science fiction, independent films, video art, and hybrids of these genres.

Open to: Bachelors degree in Photography majors and Photography minors only. Pre-requisite(s): PUPH 2110 Core Studio 2 or PSAM 1050 Intro to Photo AND PSAM 1060 Light and Image.
