Lady Gaga is an inspiration to millions of Little Monsters all over the world, and now she's an inspiration to New York's School of the International Center of Photography. A week-long continuing education course based about Gaga is being offered by the school this August.
Called "Lady Gaga: A Platform for Self Expression through Photography," the course is aimed at students who wish to "develop an approach to expressing one's identity in a...visual way through photography." The course will explore Gaga's own approach to artistry, and "the ways in which she has challenged and confronted societal boundaries for self-expression."
But what does Gaga actually have to do with photography? Well, a lot, actually. Not only does the star constantly post photos of herself online, but she collaborated with famed photographer Terry Richardson on a book of photographs of herself. And let's not forget, she's a creative director for Polaroid, one of the world's best-known camera companies.
Some of the homework assignments in this course will include "emulating or using one of Gaga's projects as a source of inspiration," as well as doing your own project about your own interests. Students will emerge from the class with "a concept-driven, individual, photography project about identity," according to the course description.
