Photo III: Final Project Proposal Form

October 29, 2010

Prepare to embark on your final, half-term project.  You will make a cohesive body of photographic work.  The work should hold together in its concepts, themes, and form.  I expect thoughtfulness and dedication to the creative process, as well as technical competence, inventiveness, originality and a solid conceptual approach.

We will have scheduled working critiques, and a final critique as outlined in the syllabus and schedule.  But first you must propose your project. Download this form and fill it out using Microsoft Word: Final Project Proposal.  Then, print it and turn it in no later than Nov 5.

Two of Matt Swetel's pieces from his spring 2010 final project. He will exhibit the series in a solo exhibition at Anderson Creative in Canton, OH early next year.
