In this course, students survey the history of photography as both technology and art form as well as the medium's evolution from humble camera obscura to its status as a major conduit of contemporary culture in the digital era. Students learn to identify a wide range of photographic processes and the important figures that utilized them with intention, across a variety of genre and social contexts. Participation is required in discussions of major artistic trends and the interpretive aspects of photographic content.
