Photojournalism tells stories through pictures and this class invites you to fully immerse yourself in Danish life and tell stories with your camera. Together, we critically analyze examples of photos that have changed world history and discuss the ethics of photojournalism. You then choose a Danish person as your subject with the aim to produce your own classic photographic feature in the tradition of Life Magazine.

Note: Please be aware that this is not a technical photography foundation course. Bring a camera. It is recommended to bring a digital camera other than a phone.
