Here is the film by Helen Levitt that came up in discussion yesterday. (link )

Reading for week 3:
Geoff Dyer: The Ongoing Moment (on reserve in the library), first essay.
Susan Sontag: The Image World from On Photography
Peter Schjeldahl: Thomas Struth

Each student needs to upload their work to date on the blog as follows:
Week 1: 1 photograph and 50-100 words
Week 2: 3 Photographs and 150-200 words.
When posting, include labels (can be added in column on rhs of posts, and searchable in column on rhs of blog) , links, relevant reading etc so that the blog can be used as a collective resource during the semester
