Home /  Courses And Programs / A Short History of Photography


Examine major photographic movements and the individuals who have shaped the history of the medium. Beginning with discussion of pre-photographic experiments and continuing toward a look at contemporary photography, students will learn the relevance of the medium's rich and complex history. Lectures will concentrate on the progression of visual culture, role of science and photography's dubious relationship with art. A print viewing assignment will bring students face to face with rare examples of original prints and masterworks of photography. The goal of this course is to engage history with a tangible understanding of the medium and its relationship to the act of making images.
