Assignment Step-by-Step Instructions

  1. Find and read Szarkowski's article "The Photographer's Eye."
  2. Make notes in your own words while researching. Keep track of quotations and sources so that you can reference the information later. Compose a paper, which should be a minimum of 750 words, and discuss the following:
    1. Summarize the major points of Szarkowski's article in your own words, pointing out areas where you agree and disagree with the author's point of view on the thing itself, detail, frame, time, and vantage point. Reference the weekly readings in your textbook as well as Week 4 lectures to support your argument. Note at least two specific examples to justify why you agree or disagree with Szarkowski's main points.
    2. Select one artwork from the Precursors to Postmodernism column and one artwork from the Postmodernism column above. Do not select the same artist as your Week 5 final project photographer. Locate and study a copy of the two photographs. Embed them in your paper.
    3. Using Szarkowski's theories, analyze the two images you picked from the list in the assignment, referencing appropriate critical theory vocabulary.
    4. Compare and contrast the images. How did the later photograph evolve from the earlier photographic approach? What changed?
    5. Discuss your position on artists who use photography in their work—is it sculpture, performance, photography, or something else? Explain on the basis of the article you read how Szarkowski would evaluate such work.
    6. Make conclusions about how the fine art photographic aesthetic has evolved from the 1950s. What changed? What stayed the same? What was rejected?
    7. On the basis of what you've seen so far in the lectures and textbook, what elements of the postmodern photograph do you see continuing in the future?
  3. Add a works-cited page to your Microsoft Word document that lists all the sources you used in your research. Follow MLA conventions.
