ART-1035 - History of Photography (A) (3)


This course will explore the history of photography by examining photographers and examples of their work from the earliest concept of the use of mathematics and optics to the independent art form into which the medium has evolved. Careful attention will be paid to the diversity of the medium, i.e. photographs as documents, as products of a particular scientific process, and as communication in the context of word/picture relationships. Examination of photography as a fine art expression and learning the criteria for criticism will provide a forum to explore the debate between the technical and the artistic merit of the medium.  This course satisfies the General Education Arts requirement.
