WEDNESDAY 5 APRIL 2023
Photography as fine art
At Broadwell Village Hall, GL56 0TL
Lectures one and two: photography as fine art
An analysis, looking at the work of outstanding photographers including Ansel Adams, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Ernst Haas, Bill Brandt, David Bailey, Dorothea Lange, Fay Godwin, Arnold Newman, Terence Donovan, Jane Bown and Andreas Gursky, of how photography can equal, and sometimes exceed, painting in the classic genres of:
Portraits, landscape, narrative, the human condition, still life.
There are several areas of debate within serious photography circles. These are:
* Black and white versus colour: Why is one often considered to be more sincere, or aesthetically valid, than the other?
* The impact of digital photography
Lecture three: great photographs of the 20th century
The camera has given us some of the most vivid images of modern times. This lecture examines a series of brilliant photographs and explains what makes these images so special.
