Analysis of Arts

This course addresses the many purposes to which photography has been put outside the realm of art. Students consider the studio portrait, the postmortem portrait, journalistic photography, scientific photography, forensic photography, “spirit” and Kirlian photography, erotic photography, advertising photography, fumetti, and the snapshot. Students study methods of production and reproduction – the carte de vistie, the postcard, the Fotomat, the Polaroid – in their social and historical contexts. Discussion topics include how photographs change their meaning over time, how they insinuate themselves into the unconscious, and the human desire for narrative.
