Gippsland Second semester 2005 (Day)
Synopsis: 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.
Objectives: 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.
