Language of instruction
Semestrial task – one theme worked out in different genres (eg. landscape, portrait, documentary photography or still life). Simultaneously we will deal with technical aspects of analog photography. Inasmuch as students have already shown their skills in black and white photography, we will work with digital media.
Each week will be held mandatory studio meetings, individual consultations and discussions about students' major work.
Assignments and topic of semestrial work might change during the study process.
