This course examines the history of photography, from its invention in the 1830s to the present. Emphasis is given to the intellectual, cultural, and historical frameworks of key technologies, techniques, movements, styles, artists, and works of art, combined with close attention to the perspectives and values of global audiences and photographers. International in scope from its beginnings, photography--its artists, its images, its critics, its viewers--is a medium whose history continues to illuminate contemporary photographic art practices.
