Paris in Black & White
Level: Pre-College, Undergraduate, Graduate, & Young Professionals
During this two-week intensive course we will explore the history and techniques of Black & White (B&W) photography using Paris as its backdrop. We will split our time between the darkroom and the “City of Light”.
Looking at 19th and 20th century B&W photography, we will examine how B&W may engage us in ways we take for granted when experiencing and photographing in color. Questions like: Do we see differently?, Are some subtleties lost or sacrificed? , How do light and composition play out in the final print? will be addressed. By exploring the power of B&W photography we will begin to understand how it can help us in our own contemporary practices. As well, content, format and the final print in this study of B&W photography will be addressed.
What better place to study Black & White photography than in the place of its birth!
