Contemporary Photography: From Markus Brunetti to Mickalene Thomas
Photography is an increasingly popular medium in the world of fine art. This course will introduce prominent contemporary photographers and the concepts and stylistic approaches they use. We will explore subjects, such as the human body, concept of beauty, portraiture, architecture, and abstraction. We will strive to find answers to relevant and resonant questions: What makes a photograph a work of art? Are images composed or (seemingly) snapshots? Why black and white or why color? What are the recent trends?
