AHI.Q 123 - History of Photography


(PEQ Visual Performing Arts) What role does photographic imagery play in our lives?

Students will examine many of the technical developments (e.g. chemistry, optics, etc.) that make photography, as we know it today, possible. Emphasis will also be placed on exploring how photography has been used as both a means for documentation and as a vehicle for self-exploration and personal creative expression. Individual photographers and their photographs will be examined in light of aesthetic, social and cultural trends, both past and present. Course Codes: BR.
