This assignment requires that you create a self portrait: one that shows “who you are” and one that shows “who you are not.” You can work alone or partner with another class member to create your portraits. Flip cams are available in Roesch Library at the circulation desk or you can use your cell phone.
This is not a studio class and as such this is not a studio project. It concerns the reception and interpretation of images, in this case raising questions on the gap between critical and expressive photography. Return to the PowerPoint portrait lecture in attachment to set-up pictures (staged) and those that laid claim to the ambivalent territory of the documentary.
