Osher Events : Famous Photographers and Their Role in History
2:00 PM to 4:00 PM
Famous Photographers and Their Role in History
This course will provide an illustrated overview of famous photographers who have created important and memorable images in the history of photography. Legendary photographers from the 19th and 20th centuries will be covered, including Ansel Adams, Dorothea Lange, and many others. Each class will consist of a fast-paced slide lecture, describing influential photographers and their approach to the medium. While not a how-to course in photo technique, you’ll come away inspired to continue your own photography!
