ARTH 761 Fall 2012 Landscapes and Photography

ARTH 761 Fall 2012

Landscapes and Photography Elective Course

Course Format: Seminar TTH 8-10:30

Professor Holly Goldstein Arnold Hall 137

Course Description How do we define landscape? How are photographs uniquely suited to capture the grace, horror, and beauty of the places in which we live, work, and play? This course examines photographic landscapes from the everyday to the extraordinary, from the serene to the surreal. Theoretical readings situate landscape photography within a larger framework of photographic history and criticism and explore various representations of landscape throughout the history of photography from 1839 until the present, with a special focus on American practitioners and places. Topics include landscapes and beauty, religion, politics, time, and the ordinary.
