Final Project Reminder


Next Monday, May 1, upon walking into class, your Final Project (the photographs) are due.

Please pay careful attention to the order this project needs to be submitted (listed below) AND that overall, you create a successful triptych — three separate photographs that can stand alone but that also work when placed together. The photographs should allow the viewer to understand both specific and abstract qualities of the person you chose to photograph.

PHOTO ONE: PLACE You should to pick a place that relays emotive information regarding your subject. Be prepared to discuss why you chose that specific place. 

PHOTO TWO: THING You will need to pick a thing that relays emotive information regarding your sitter. Be prepared to discuss why you chose that specific thing. 

PHOTO THREE: PERSON A portrait of your person without showing their face. Be prepared to discuss your connection/interest in this person. 

PHOTO FOUR: TRIPTYCH: A photograph of the person, place and thing laid out in one frame, on one page, and printed.
