Abstract:
This six-week picture-based series consisted of two elements taught on the same afternoon: a fully-developed lecture on an individual photographer, complemented by a practical print seminar on his or her work and that of other artists in the same broad tradition, drawing upon the rich resources of the V& A Print Collections and the National Art Library. The major figures were Julia Margaret Cameron, Frederick H. Evans & Edward Weston, Alvin Langdon Coburn, Alfred Stieglitz, Paul Strand and Ansel Adams.
