Global History of Photography
Overview of photography’s global history, beginning with proto-photographic forms and ending with a consideration of digital technology and social media. Art photography is examined alongside journalistic, scientific and ethnographic paradigms of photographic practice. Conceptual issues such as socio-cultural power relationships and diverse representations of time lie at the heart of this course.
