ART 322 The History of Photography

This course is a survey of photography from its origin in the 19th century to the present. Students will study photography as a fine art medium while focusing on major photographic movements and investigating their socio-historical contexts. Thus, students will examine the social and artistic ramifications of photography, rather than the scientific theory of the photographic process. This course is, therefore, non-technical in nature.
