This course investigates the impact of photography on culture, art, and society from the first photo in Europe around 1840 and up until today. We explore the role of photography beyond mainstream cultural accounts, integrating a diversity of disciplines from history to journalism, law, medicine, and science. Through hands-on exercises, field studies and meetings with professionals in studios, we zoom in on the interplay of seeing and learning, investigating photography’s role in shaping societies, memories, and identities.
