People have different motives for creating a self-portrait. Sometimes it is a form of self-promotion; sometimes it is the core theme of an artist's practice; or sometimes it is how one would document important events in their lives. The aim of this course is to help students discover different ways to create self-portraits, as well as to encourage them to turn their own experiences into creative themes. By appreciating works of different photographers, they learn how to use self-portraits to convey themes related to identity politics, personal growth, families, performance art or hidden thoughts. At the end of the course, students are expected to create selfies with a complete concept and execution. The exploration of the body and photography allows them to understand the connection between self, space, society and environment.
