  • In this performance I try to summarize In search of past time with my own words, as a story of another time which reveals itself contemporary. I deliver my own intimate and personal perception of this book which radiates in my life. Each performance is another opportunity to explore different zones of the book, proceeding at random, inspired by an aleatory and fickle memory.

Fine Art Photojournalism in the Age of Social Media


Fine Art Photojournalism has evolved into a specialized type of art reportage that requires skills in photography, writing, diplomacy, and art criticism. Social Media has evolved to support our need to know and to stay connected. In this course, students report the news about fellow artists and the emerging icons of the contemporary art world using Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, Blogger, Tumblr, and more. Students photograph art and interview artists at gallery exhibitions, museum openings, and art receptions in the Los Angeles area. Participants learn how to develop and write objective stories, maintain professional relationships, and demonstrate skilled criticism. Students develop images for publication online and/or portfolio review. Lectures take place at Otis however students are required to visit exhibitions throughout the city to collect relevant information.

Prerequisite: XPHO0000, Introduction to Photography; XPHO0000, Introduction to Black and White Darkroom
