The Photo Essay: Storytelling with image and text FXA202

Hobart

Introduction

.We know the impact that photographic and digital images can have on us, individually and collectively. When images and words come together to tell a story they can be entertaining, revelatory, breath-taking, and even powerful agents of change. In this unit, you will learn how to create a photo essay, by honing your writing skills and learning how to create, select, and edit photographic and digital images. Putting words and images together, you will identify how to use the photo essay format for professional and creative expression and evaluate how this format and the skills that you have learnt can be applied in the context of Creative Arts and Health.
