Fourth in a series of lectures on the history of photography by renowned educator, photographer, and historian, Brenton Hamilton. Photography is inserted into our culture and into our consciousness. Take an hour and a half survey on what photographs mean with Brenton Hamilton and look at coded images throughout the medium’s history. Photography’s relationship to reality and its persuasive nature are potent. Let’s look at a political image from 1840, shocking images of truth from the American Civil War, a Western image from the Manifest Destiny period, or images in Europe by experimental artists who sought to change society….just to begin!
