Print Viewing: Photography as Social Practice

Published October 27, 2022

This print viewing set introduces students to artists who use their practice to elevate awareness of social, economic, and cultural issues and to inspire positive social change.

In this photographic approach, the process of collaboration is often as important as the physical artwork and the relationships between subject, audience, and community are paramount. This selection of work encourages students to discuss perceptions of social issues and how photography can either represent or misrepresent these topics, while also navigating the artists’ formal choices.
