Many artists are defined by a signature style. This style can be expressed through subject choice, artistic technique, or other conceptual and presentational methods that make a particular photographer’s work easily identifiable and unique. It is these qualities that separate an enduring image from tomorrow’s fish wrap.

Students will edit their own work and critique each other’s documentary projects; the end result will be a twelve- to twenty-image portfolio that embodies each student’s singular vision.
