« back to classes page
In the modern age, photographs are ubiquitous as both private and public documents and remain important across the arts and sciences, ever-present in popular culture, and crucial in coverage of news. This course focuses on photojournalism, broadly construed as the uses of photography to document and bear witness to human existence and events, with the objective of familiarizing participants with the history and contemporary landscape of a rapidly changing yet enduring endeavor. Sessions revolve around analysis of the work of selected photographers past and present, in the U.S. as well as internationally, and study of the contexts in which photographic images are produced, disseminated and received.
