Photo Arts - Contemporary Issues

Haliburton School of Art + Design

Enrol in Photo Arts - Contemporary Issues

Course Code: ARTS0639

The rise of colour photography in the early 1970s heralded major developments, with leading-edge photographers challenging established norms, responding to the dynamic artistic climate, and the social and political contexts of the day. Building on their knowledge of the history of photography, learners will examine these developments and trace them through to the issues and technological wonderland that photographers and image makers work in today. The studio course allows learners to pursue either digital or darkroom-based projects, further honing technical skills. The projects are designed to develop in the student an appreciation of the issues that drive the art form and which will ultimately influence their own artistic practice. Slide lectures, critical analysis, group discussion, research, and hands-on projects will facilitate this process.

Some courses require additional textbooks and/or materials. Please visit your campus bookstore in-person or online: Peterborough Bookstore or Lindsay Bookstore.
