I had a wonderful time teaching the course Digital and Travel Photo: Composition and Narrative in Oxford, UK! Students mastered the basics of digital photography while exploring the elements of art and design, composition, utilizing different forms of light, portraiture, street photography, story telling, alt. processes, basic book binding, and more in this fast paced, hands-on course. Photo students collaborated with drama students from the course ‘Shakespeare’ in order to create images in conjunction with written verses from various Shakespeare classics.
Class trips included excursions to Lacock Abbey to the Fox-Talbot Museum, various places around Oxford, and several contemporary art exhibitions including Marina Abramovic at the Serpentine Gallery in London, The National Portrait Gallery London, and more. The course concluded with a strong exhibit of student work in conjunction with written artist statements at the Lady Brody Room at St. Hilda’s College.
