Semantics: Incorporating Text in Photography

An experimental course that will consider the use of writing to enhance, complement, interrogate or subvert images. This class will build on one’s own writing – whether narrative, poetry, or an artist statement – to intersect, connect and/or draw parallels between text and image (and vice versa), and potentially open up your work to new possibilities. Open to writers and photographers alike. Non-native English speakers welcomed.
