Course Description

 Most everyone now agrees that photographs can be works of art. However, not everyone agrees on which photographs are works of art, much less on what art is or even what a photograph is. Not all famous or great photographs are art, and not all photographic works of art are famous or great. So what counts as photographic art?  We will start by looking at some  traditional and recent theories of art, in order to elicit a better understanding of what it is to be art. Then we will focus on what it is to be a photograph. Finally, we will merge our insights into a view about what it is to be a photographic work of art. Lecture (plus Questions)
