Explore the origins of photography, from early beginnings as a science experiment through its development into one of the world’s most popular art forms. Taught by local photographer Liz Donadio, the History of Photography class offered at the Current Space Community Darkroom is an in-depth investigation of the medium, from chemistry to digital. We will look at works from some of the most important artists in the field, as well as some of its lesser-known (but just as important) contributors.
Designed for artists, photographers, or those just looking to expand their knowledge of art, History of Photography will be held as a single day session. It will run for 3 hours (with a break) and consist of a lecture, slide presentation, and group discussion. A hands-on demonstration of a method of early photography will be offered and participants will also receive a digital copy of the lecture for their own research.
At the end of the session, you will come away with a greater insight into the medium, exposure to new artists, and a strong basis of understanding the history of photography. Let the investigation of this significant art form influence and expand your appreciation of the history of art!
Liz Donadio is a Baltimore based artist, she teaches in the Photography and Art History departments at Towson University, and runs a fine-art digital print studio called Color Wheel.
