We will look at works of great photographers, most of them famous, and ask ourselves what makes them great. To this end, we will explore various types of photography: portrait, protest, fantasy, fashion, street, staged, montage, minimalist, conceptual, candid, and so forth. Do these different types have different standards? What makes someone’s photograph of a river worth $4.3 million? When is a photograph art? How do great photographs embody time and how does timeliness relate to timelessness? What’s right or wrong about photoshopping images with filters or layers? Toward the end of the course, class members who so wish can present their own favorite great photographer and tell us why. Lecture (plus Questions) Facilitated Discussion
