Roman Holiday? Not Quite...

…But what better place to study photography than a city that revolves around art? In the summer course Photographic Projects in Rome, students take advantage of the beautiful and historically rich city as their backdrop. A whole semester’s worth of work is accomplished during just one month, so it’s no vacation, but the immersion is part of the appeal. Students study and apply image-making practices in exploring what it means to experience, comment on, and photographically interpret place. They also take a three-day trip to Venice for the Biennale, the largest and most important international contemporary art exposition in the world. “I realized that our world is a kind of system, with actions and reactions across continents,” says Tom Smith ’13 of what he learned on the trip, “and I sought to understand the role photography played in this.”
