|Society Through the Lens - COFA0215|
Ever since the camera was invented people have been using it to document and explore the world around them. Photographic images have great potential to tell stories and reveal insights about our everyday life.
This course has a largely practical component where you will be encouraged to get out in the 'field', camera in hand, with the intent of capturing images that reveal something about the society in which you live.
You will be introduced to new methods with which to document, evaluate and consequently better understand society through the lens. The course will cover work by a number of contemporary practitioners and organisations that are committed to effective social photography worldwide.
You will need to have access to a camera to be able to participate in this fully online course. It is suitable for students from a broad range of disciplines who are interested in the still photographic image and its potential to complement their individual area of study or interest.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Students will receive log in instructions via their UNSW email account prior to the commencement of the course. This course is conducted via the Omnium system (omnium.edu.au).
