Welcome to Urban Photography Class!
This course is intended to deepen the understanding of urban spaces, and to enhance methodological skills in capturing different aspects of urban scenes. Photography can help us observe more details of everyday life in urban spaces.
Class builds upon two parallel paths of understanding subjects from "urban spaces", and learning topics from "photography techniques." Students will gain hands on experience in expressing urban spaces through photography and put together a final portfolio.
This course will follow a non-traditional class structure; limited lectures will be given and the class will progress through group discussions on the subjects/topics using the photos taken by students or from elsewhere.
This is the third year of Urban Photography class at the UW. Take a look at the two past years' Flickr photostreams below.
