12cp; 6hpw (1hr: interactive lecture, 2hrs: studio tutorial, 3hrs: lab workshop)
Requisite(s): 80047 Critical Image Studio: Image Ethics and Portraiture AND 80065 Critical Image Studio: Image Activism and Documentary Practice



This subject introduces ideas and practices relating to the theoretical notion of post-photography. We are said to be living in a post photographic era where expanded forms of image making are central to photographic enquiry and practice. Students are introduced to conceptual and practical developments in the field of image making by studying practices deemed 'post photographic'. Through a series of practical and research-driven projects, students extend their technical skills and conceptual processes. The subject's collaborative learning tasks encourage further experimentation with digital methods of production as well as the application of new ideas gleaned from a sustained examination of digital post-photographic culture. This subject consolidates skills in digital manipulation, post-production, and photographic outcomes in print, web and other forms of electronic and analogue media. It encourages a consideration and application of photographic and digital media skills relevant to professional practice and broader image based contexts.
