MFP 702 - Graduate Seminar: Photography II


This second residency seminar will be an overview of the technical and aesthetic developments in photography from its inception in 1827 in France as a tool for documentation, through the first part of the twentieth century when American and European photographers embraced and promoted photography as a fine art medium. Major bodies of work produced during this time period, including European portraiture by Nadar and Julia Margaret Cameron; photography and the documentation of social issues such as child labor and poverty during the Great Depression will be presented and discussed along with the Photo-Secession movement and Modernism in photography as reflected in the work of the F64 group. Topics are explored in writing assignments and class discussions as well as through readings, video and film viewing. Each student will produce short writing assignments that accompany assigned readings. (3 Credits)
