This course is designed to give advanced students a comprehensive investigation of the history of photography. This course explores the technical innovations, cultural implications and the major figures in its history. Students will learn about the subject through lectures, readings and exams but they will also learn through hands-on projects using historic processes to make their own work. Major technical emphasis will be placed on the use of the large format view camera. note: this course can fulfill advanced coursework for photography majors, or an art elective for non-photo majors. It does not fulfill a 3000 or above art history requirement, nor is it a DSW certified course.
