What to Bring: DSLR camera

Robert Adams once wrote about photography: Better to be a psalmist than a prophet. With a camera that merely makes a copy of what is in front of it, how is it possible to do either, prophecy or psalmody? The function of art has always been to transform the world, not merely to copy it. In this course, we will take a classical approach to photography, studying how art photographers over the past 180 years have used the camera to create art. There will be a photo assignment each week to imitate one of the photographers covered. Participants will need a DSLR camera and access to a computer.
