New York City Through the Lens of Iconic Photographers

This course will examine the work of noted photographers whose work from the earliest days of photographic image-making to the beginnings of the digital revolution have captured and defined the New York City urban experience. From the early beginnings with Alfred Stieglitz to more contemporary photographers such as Roy DeCarava and Nan Goldin, New York City-based photographers transcend both technologies and styles to portray the life of New York City throughout the media’s history. We will look at the images by prominent New York City photographers, discuss the how, when, and where they photographed as well as their contribution to the canons of photographic history. We will visit the Metropolitan Museum for a tour of their photography exhibition.
