[SOLVED] Nikki S. Lee
THE required UMGC source is attached PDF file. Write about one of the photographers from the list below. Do not copy and paste from Wikipedia (I will be able to tell.) First search for information from the UMGC library. (Typing in the name of the photographer in quotations in the main search bar will yield results.) Next search online, for information from credible sources. (This means Museum’s writing about the photographers, the New York Times arts section, ArtNet, etc.) You must include at least one source consulted from the UMGC Library and consult at least 4 different sources. When you list your sources at the end of your paper, please clearly label which source(s) were retrieved from the UMGC library. Provide a direct web link to your sources where possible. List your sources at the end of the paper and whenever you use a quote within the paper follow the APA citation style. More help can be found in the “writing resources” section. Make sure to proof-read your paper for spelling and grammar errors before submission. Write about your chosen artist answering each of the following bullet-points. Write at least one paragraph for each bullet point. You should copy and paste the bullet points below into a word document and answer them in complete sentence, paragraph form. Please include photographs to accompany your paper and links to the sources you consulted for the paper. Artists biographical information and background: date and place of birth, family background, where he/she grew up, what schools he/she attended, what he/she studied, etc. First exhibitions and accomplishments as an artist: How did he/she come to be well-known? Inspirations and influences: What influenced the artist? This is where you can provide historical context for the artists work. Examples of work: Most artists have made a large variety of work. Choose 3 of your favorite photographs and tell us why you like them in your own words. Explain what series this photograph is part of if it is part of a larger series of work. Copy and paste the photographs you have chosen and include them with the write-up. (Please list the artist, title, and date of the pieces that you include.) (ie: Cindy Sherman is best known for her series “Untitled Film Stills” in which she dresses up restages fictitious scenes from films.) Working style of the artist: Where did the artist go to make these images? (Do they travel? Set up photos in the studio? Take self portraits?) What kind of equipment does he/she use? (A simple camera, flashes?) (ie: William Eggleston is known for photographing the Mississippi Delta region, where he is from. He prefers to walk and roam the streets, looking for ordinary everday objects and subjects. Very rarely does he stage a photograph.) Overarching concept and style of the artists work: Tell use more about the themes in the artists work. What is he/she known for? What is he/she trying to express or comment upon in the work? Look at reviews of the artists work or a review of an exhibition he has been in. Please find reviews from reputable sources (the New York Times, the Washington Post, FindArticles, etc.). (ie: Robert Frank is best known for his series, “The Americans” in which he criss-crossed the United States between 1955 and 1956 trying to capture the true essence of those times, in society, politics, and culture. He is trying to show the human condition and what it meant and looked like to exist during that time in the mid 50s.) What is the artist doing now: exhibitions, artwork, lectures, grants, etc. If the photographer is no longer alive, what was a recent exhibition of their work and what did it show? (Ie: Diane Arbus is no longer alive, however her work continues to be shown throughout the world, a recent solo exhibition of her work was shown at FOAM, in Amsterdam and featured a retrospective of her black and white portraits of people on the fringes of society.) To conclude: Find an interesting anecdote, fun story or quote about the artist to share and include it as the final bullet point.
