Evening course: Perceptions of Truth in Photography / starts 28 April 2021

Developed by Catlin Langford - Curatorial Fellow in Photography at the V&A, in association with Barbican, this six-week online evening course will provide you with an introduction to the history of photography, focusing on the idea of ‘truth’.

Discover early manipulation techniques, staged scenes, and faked imagery, from fairies to phantoms. Learn through illustrated lectures featuring works by a range of artists, including Roger Fenton, Dorothy Wilding, Carrie Mae Weems, Henry Peach Robinson, Brook Andrew, Jo Spence, Iñaki Bonillas, Hans Eijkelboom, Dorothea Lange, among many others.

At the end of the course, you can expect to have developed a deeper understanding of the history of photography and should feel confident to critically engage with historical and contemporary photographic images.
