Exploring History Through Landscape Photography

Landscape photography has been a vital and fertile genre explored by lens-based artists since the beginning of the medium. Students will examine emerging and established artists, such as Elliot Dudik, Simon Norfolk, and Adam Reynolds, who select the sites they photograph based on the location’s historical significance. While looking at images, the class will engage in dialogue about the artist’s motivations and how the landscapes fit into our national and human histories. Students will examine questions such as: How do landscapes remember history? And how are memorial sites and historically significant landscapes documented and artistically explored by contemporary artists? Over two class sessions, students will grow their visual language and understanding of photographic theory and expand their knowledge of art history.
