American Photography


Since the beginning of the 20th century photography has played an important role in telling the story ofAmericaand its people. From the social documentary of Jacob Riis, Lewis Hine and Dorothea Lange in the beginning of the century, and the road photography of Robert Frank and William Eggleston in the sixties and seventies, to the contemporary attempts to reinterpret the story after 9/11 by the likes of Taryn Simon, Brian Ulrich and Ulrich Soth. In this course we will take a look at the story ofAmericatold by photography but also take a look at "the story of photography", that is the development of the medium and the development of a theoretical understanding of it through the period. 

The course will be organized as a combination of teacher and student lectures, supplemented by different exercises in and between classes.
