Standards of beauty and forms of representation will be critically dissected and questioned. We will take a peek under the hood of popular culture and see what drives it. Through writing and photography (both darkroom and digital) the class will be encouraged to make work that expresses who the student is as an individual, and how the landscape of pop culture shapes our world.

PRO Photo — August 22-26, 12-4pm
