Photography is synonymous with the rise of the modern era. A technology that emerged out of Europe in the 1830s, the photograph quickly became a defining vehicle for self-expression. It brought about a democratization of the arts, in that we all became historians to our own experience. This course explores the changes photography brought to our relationship with history, authenticity, and our understanding of time. It will also provide an art historical perspective of the different movements, personalities, and styles that have defined the medium from its early roots to the rise of digital technology and the age of social media.
