ARTH 5580 History of Photography


This course will provide an overview of photography as a fine art and medium of communication. Starting as a tool for documentation to its use by artists, photography has provided us with an unprecedented device for “seeing” the world. The aim of this course is not encyclopedic knowledge but a critical understanding of photography, its evolution, key innovators and artists, all within the context of the Modern and Postmodern experience.
