Class Notes: History of Photography This course surveys the history of photography as a modern mode of visual communication. While our primary focus will be on photography as an artistic medium, we will explore the wide range of uses of photography and consider how it functions as a tool of representation. Students in this course will not only improve their visual literacy and become more aware of modern history, but will also gain an understanding of the various modes of photography (artistic, journalistic, documentary, advertising, etc.), and the fundamental and long-standing relationship between photography and the mass media. Furthermore, given the fact that all of us carry cameras all the time, we shall consider the changing role of photography in everyday life.|
