          2004 Student Awards Jury Comments

The purpose of this guidebook is to acquaint teachers and students of landscape architecture with the techniques and theories that influence the way we take and read photographs. The goal of this guide is to enable a process of active taking and looking. The lessons and examples articulate ways to more deeply and critically engage in the photographic process as a part of the larger design process. Like all other tools of representation, there are qualities inherent to the photographic process that can be mastered and manipulated to yield photographic representations that more closely match the perceptions of a place, which can be literal or abstract. This mastery is a step towards active engagement of the tool: the camera; and the representations it yields: the photograph.
