Independent Proposal
Research, Brainstorming & a ProposalStep One:
Research each of the artists/topics I’ve found for you. Use the internet effectively, don’t just limit yourself to a Google search, check out galleries, artists websites, etc. Use your sketchbook todocument the following as part of your research:1)
Choose three works for each artist that you like, choose a variety. Include their title, date, andmedia.2)
A brief/three-four sentence explanation/encapsulation of this artist’s concepts and interests. Bespecific, be succinct, be articulate, and don’t copy mine!3)
Of these concepts, which ones relate to your work so far? Explain and describe connections withspecific artworks of your own.
Diane Arbus
-American portrait photographer, incredibly curious about re-presenting "stereotypes" of people. Weirdos,freaks, twins, people who we're really interested in, but hate to admit it. Arbus exposes these people to the world respectfullyin her photography, but also in a way that allows us to really look at them. They're edgy, but beautiful.

- American, "Raised by Wolves" series. Goldberg studied homeless, punk, kids living on the streets in LA.He would follow them around, and create small stories about them. His photos are also edgy and some hard to take, but beautiful in their honesty.
Jacques Henri Lartigue
- French photographic prodigy who was making his first black and white photos in theearly 1900s when he was eight years old! Because he took so many photographs as a young boy, his perspective onthe world is completely honest, kid-like, and beautiful. Take a look at how he uses point-of-view and how hetransforms his family members and friends into incredible works of art.
