ART 355 The History and Practice of Photography

This seminar class considers the history of photography through its technological developments and its primacy in our media saturated culture.  In an effort to understand photography's global reach, photographers and art movements from the global South (Latin America and Africa) in addition to the European/American canon will be studied.  Every assignment will include both analogue and digital processes.  Students will be able to choose to write a research paper or pursue a photographic project as their final project.  [GM1, H]
