MFA with a focus on photography
Prior Teaching Experience:
Successful teaching related to field at college or university level
Required competence, capability, skill and ability related to course content:
Photo III and Photo IV are taught together. The Photo III course is project-based, while the Photo IV course emphasizes conceptual and material development of a comprehensive body of work that culminates in an exhibition. Combining the two courses requires a high level of organization. Successful teaching in the field of photography at the university level is essential to his position. Knowledge of photographic history and how it relates to recent and emerging image-based theory is critical to this position, as is familiarity with important international photography festivals and survey exhibitions, artists, and terminology. As students in both courses can opt to work with a wide range of techniques and materials, the successful candidate will be well versed in the technical and material possibilities of both digital and analogue photography (camera formats, lighting techniques, film and darkroom processes, Photoshop and Bridge) Since experimental and hybrid approaches to photography are encouraged, knowledge of other studio art disciplines would be considered an asset. Please provide examples of the required skills.
