About this course:

Among the important and revolutionary inventions of the Industrial Revolution was the introduction of photography. It immediately altered the way that people saw the world, and dramatically changed the course of art in Europe and America. This course explores the development and introduction of photography and its impact on the history of art. Beginning with the scientific advancements of Nicéphore Niépce and Louis Daguerre that led to its development, we discuss the struggle for photography to become an art form and the first generation of photographers such as Nadar, Julia Margaret Cameron and Mathew Brady. We also see how painters reacted to the introduction of this new art form.
