AH 321 - History Of Photography


Credits: 4
An introduction to the history of the medium from its “invention” in 1839 to the present. This course looks at such forms of photography as pictorialism, straight photography, montage, documentary, and photojournalism, situating them in their social, cultural, and art-historical contexts. A significant theme of the course will be how, or even whether, photographs depict reality.
Prerequisites: one art history course.
K. Hauser, M. Hellman
