New Book: Documentary Photography: Italy 2013!

6 Caffe
By Rebecca Brown, Raymond Sung Ho Chang, Michelle Kalil, Christopher Nelson, Dorina Puchinskaya, Barbara Rusnack; Edited by Stephan Apicella-Hitchcock and Joseph Lawton

6 Caffe is the final culmination of the 2013 course Documentary Photography: Italy offered by Stephan Apicella-Hitchcock & Joseph Lawton through the Department of Theatre and Visual Arts at Fordham University.

The book is 90 pages, 10 x 8 inches (25 x 20 cm), with four-color printing and can be ordered in softcover, or hardback in a range of paper grades. Preview the entire book here.

The course description is as follows:

A sampling of photographs from participants in the Fordham University 2013 Documentary Photography: Italy program. Over the course of one month in Rome this intensive class introduced students to the basic and advanced techniques of image production with a major emphasis on generating documentary projects directly relating to the people, architecture, and culture of Italy.

The cosmopolitan city of Rome, rich with artistic history, served as the source for our photographic explorations, as well as the catalyst for discussions addressing the historical significance of the documentary impulse. Our studies and production brought us from exhibitions in progressive contemporary art galleries, to the ancient architecture of the Colosseum as we utilized the wealth of visual stimuli as a resource, as well as a backdrop against which to critically discuss the strategies that documentarians utilize in communicating their interests.

Excerpted Description of Documentary Photography: Italy
The cosmopolitan city of Rome, rich with artistic history, served as the source for our photographic explorations, as well as the catalyst for discussions addressing the historical significance of the documentary impulse. Our studies and production brought us from exhibitions in progressive contemporary art galleries, to the ancient architecture of the Colosseum as we utilized the wealth of visual stimuli as a resource, as well as a backdrop against which to critically discuss the strategies that documentarians utilize in communicating their interests.

Excerpted Description of Documentary Photography: Japan
The megacity of Tokyo will serve as the starting point for our investigations, with image making itineraries that will take us from the cosmopolitan ward of Shinjuku, to the center of youth culture in Shibuya; and from the cutting edge fashion districts of Harajuku, to the temples and shrines of Asakusa. Concurrent with our photographic explorations we will examine contemporary exhibitions in venues such as the Tokyo Metropolitan Museum of Photography in Ebisu, as well as view the ancient collections housed in Japan’s oldest and largest museum, the Tokyo National Museum in Ueno.
