Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history
As the field of photography gains increased recognition within the art world, this course provides a foundation in the history of the medium from the experiments carried out in the nineteenth century by pioneers such as Daguerre and Talbot to the work of their celebrated successors, Alfred Stieglitz, Edward Weston and Robert Mapplethorpe, considered in light of the varied cultural contexts in which they were produced.
Concluding with work by contemporary photographers, this series of lectures examines the way in which new methods of photography have been utilised by key practitioners, tracing its development from a simple means of recording the physical world to its current status as an influential and moving art form in its own right.
