Photographing our daily lives to make a journal of sorts is the best way to evaluate and transform the way we see things. Students will embark on a path to self-discovery, having to photograph everyday for the duration of the course, regardless of other commitments. The contact sheet, whether analog or digital, will form a structure for seeing by mapping the daily evolution of perception. Students will produce individual journals that will provide a framework for their imagery and writing. By the end of the course, students will have uncovered new aspects of their creativity and themselves.
