As much as practicable, students will be able to determine their own direction of study within the broad range of photo media. Each student, in consultation with the lecturer, will write a concept proposal for the creation of a body of work. At the end of the semester, a written appraisal by each student of the project will assess processes involved, direction and outcome of the work.


By completion of this unit students are expected to have demonstrated the ability to determine the content of their images and to develop self-initiated projects requiring a concept proposal prior to the creation of a body of work and a written appraisal of the project at its completion; and that they have researched and understood the basic theoretical precepts determining photographic practice and examined relevant examples of practice from the history of the medium.
