Syllabus: Imaginative photograpy studio
This studio works across genres and the expression spectrum. It is a synthesis of the visual and conceptual ideas; graphic, documentary, multi-medial or other approaches. The borders between individual types of communication are broken down in order to accent the communication itself.
The Imaginative Studio forms a creative space for students working across the entire photography spectrum. Knowledge of the photography trade creates a solid foundation for the building of autonomous self-expression through images.
The Studio lead assigns topical semestral tasks. In relationship to the assigned topic there are questions where answers are investigated together. The result of this research in interaction and discussion with the instructor is the result of the creative image. Emphasis here is on the thought foundation, sensibility and authentic individual creative attitude of each student.
Key words of the Imaginative photography studio are:
