The MCSI program for Spring 2021 is “The Careful Photograph”
The Director for Spring 2021 is Associate Professor of Art Tarrah Krajnak.
“The Careful Photograph,” podcast will feature the voices of nine emerging photographers of color who are challenging, subverting, and highlighting some of the problems and paradoxes of the photographic medium in our current moment.
Each episode will focus conversation around a single photograph by the artist. What has emerged are nine episodes that can be used as a teaching tool, or a course in itself about how to look at photographs and look “with care.” Each episode ends with a praxis assignment, visual exercise, or creative prompt for listeners.
