Course Description

Students will study the evolution of photography, from the early experiments with light sensitivity of silver salts to the establishment of portable photographic technologies. A historical overview of the medium's development from both technical and stylistic viewpoints will be examined. The course traces the development and positioning of the photographic medium within the context of modernist expression, from early attempts to contextualize photography as art, to the development of small format, handheld cameras. Cultural writings about photography will also be investigated, in relation to broader historical, theoetical, and political considerations. (Equivalent to MPS 301.)
