A note to students taking Art 261, Spring 2016:
I have begun to prepare materials for our upcoming Intermediate photography class. You may find it useful to visit the class site and subscribe to it in order to stay abreast of updates and modifications.
Also, it will help tremendously if you consider coming back to Sewanee with some sundry items:
strong rubber gloves of this kind: http://www.amazon.com/Products-13212-26-Reusable-Stripping-Refinishing/dp/B00FBP2OLM/ref=sr_1_10?ie=UTF8&qid=1452016588&sr=8-10&keywords=stripping+gloves
they should be reusable, with long sleeves and textured fingertips
a cotton apron, with pockets, covering from chest to knees of this kind: http://www.amazon.com/DII-Professional-Adjustable-Restaurant-Barbequing/dp/B00Z2Z7ZTM/ref=sr_1_1?s=home-garden&ie=UTF8&qid=1452016710&sr=1-1-spons&keywords=cotton+apron&psc=1
Bring any kind of film-based camera and equipment you may have access to. You will be provided with such a camera, but you will also have the chance to use personal equipment if you wish.
Along with cameras, your course fee will include all course texts and a core supply of photo film, paper and chemicals.
“…the secret of the Great Stories is that they have no secrets. The Great Stories are the ones you have heard and want to hear again. The ones you can enter anywhere and inhabit comfortably. They don’t deceive you with thrills and trick endings. They don’t surprise you with the unforeseen. They are as familiar as the house you live in. Or the smell of your lover’s skin. You know how they end, yet you listen as though you don’t. In the way that although you know that one day you will die, you live as though you won’t. In the Great Stories you know who lives, who dies, who finds love, who doesn’t. And yet you want to know again.
That is their mystery and their magic.”
― Arundhati Roy, The God of Small Things
