PH2740: People, Passion, and The Land: Uncovering the Layers of Modern Israel
Using cameras, students will explore the land and people of Israel, focusing on the country’s vital pentimento of cultural, historical, and religious strata. The course will emphasize documentary strategies for recording conflicts and issues that are often only incidentally visual. Daily photographing, editing and critique sessions will be supplemented with excursions, readings and guest talks.
The course will focus on Jerusalem, the religious and historical epicenter of the country. Students will also spend time in Tel Aviv, the cultural and economic center of the country. Students will meet with people of different cultural and religious persuasions such as secular Israelis, Israeli Arabs, Ultra Orthodox Jewish communities, Palestinians, Observant Muslims and Christians, Druze, and Bedouins. They will observe how the different people of Israel live side-by-side in this complex land and will create new photographic work investigating these different historical, religious, and ethnic environments.
Open to Corcoran BFA and Continuing Education students.
