AHT 3170 - Photography Across Cultures


Photography is ubiquitous in our culture, appearing in numerous forms and guises. This course will examine photographic history from the 1970s to the current day, looking at photography’s multiplicity as fine art, press, fashion and commercial venture. From documentary and documents of performances to the highly constructed imagery utilized by contemporary artists, students explore diverse subjects, styles, and methods that cover portrait, object, city, memory, appropriation, landscape, and narrative. The course provides global perspectives on photographic practices, emphasizing the cultural diversity and plurality of the medium. In discussions on theory and criticism, students will have the opportunity to raise questions about their own concerns, and utilize their own experiences as cultural producers to better understand the current state of digital photographic production. (4 Credits) Formerly AHT 317
