About your Experience
About your Experience
Bronek USA 2018Program details: The Chicago - New York Photography Tour provides students with an exciting alternative to traditional classroom based learning. It offers students with first hand experience of the shaping of knowledge through experience of the cultural, historical and contemporary aspects of art and photographic practice in the United States.
 
The course aims to develop student’s self-awareness and the ability to think critically about what they are experiencing and to keep effective written journals and visual diaries that are later sourced for writing an essay on their experience. Whilst in Chicago & New York, the tour will visit a number of major museums, contemporary galleries, artist’s studios and connect with working photographers to gain an understanding of both art and commercial areas. In Rocherster the tour will focus on the legacy and history of Kodak. Visits will include the Eastman Museum & the Rochester Contemporary Art Center
