Participants will gain further knowledge on the history of the self portrait through presentations and readings of various art forms to enhance their understanding of the representation of the self and how it relates to their work. Many artists have worked with representation of the self, and this course dives deeply into how self portraits can be used to discuss gender, the relationship between the subject and model and performance. Participants will round out the course with a deeper understanding of the complexities of photographing oneself, and a realized body of work that explores the self portrait in their own unique way.
