N O I S E    Nº1



Visually explore the times we live in and create a photographic narrative within the structure of a magazine. It is essential your idea(s) reflect a sense of considered thought, active visual exploration about your interpretations of the real world and is articulated with an individual’s vision and voice that can be brought together to reveal a more complex vision and dialog between the photographs.

Thinking about your conceptual concerns and what to photograph, I would propose you gravitate towards what your interests and curiosities are within the social landscape of the world we live in. How would you approach those concerns photographically to reveal what they would look like as a series of photographs? In addition to their visual engagement, what do you want the photographs to reveal, suggest or evoke, intellectually and/or emotionally, in relationship to these ideas and perceptions? Consider how your use of the camera, photographic aesthetics, materials and processes, as well as how your technical execution will be utilized in making photographs that begin to suggest and inform these curiosities and ideas.

Explore the possibilities of utilizing various cameras and/or materials (analog and digital, black & white or color), as well as presentation strategies (multiple-image and/or image scale) to inform your curiosities and ideas. In shooting your images, focus your energies on creating visually engaging compositions as suggested by your use of the photographic frame, point of view, details, moments of exposure, light and handling of materials.



Design and produce a photographic magazine, using MagCloud.  The printed magazine is due at the time of the Final Project Presentation as assigned on the course calendar.
