Photography & Art

Blossom! Untitled #08, 2014

When can Photography be considered Art? Why do some images sell for as much as $6.5 Million while others for as little as $5 or $10 dollars?
In this course we will take a closer look at the History of Photography and see how it has been received by the public and by critics throughout the years and how  technological advancements have been affecting it.

We will also discuss some of the most influential artists using Photography and their methods.
Next to the theoretical part of the course, there will also be some practical assignments that usually given to Art Schools students. We will compare these assignments to assignments given by more technical Photography institutes.

This course is taking place online and, if by April or May, museum visits are allowed again, we will be visiting two Photography museums in Amsterdam: Huis Marseille and FOAM as an extra activity and also as an opportunity to meet face to face.

For whom is this course?
This course is for everyone interested in Photography and Art.
You don’t need to have a fancy camera in order to participate. The assignments proposed during the course can also be done with a smart phone.
This course can also be helpful in offering you some insight into whether you should join an Art School or a Technical Photo School.
