Summary

This course offers a range of innovative courses covering the 19th-century origins of photography and the camera to the high-modernist art photography, documentary narratives and technological advances of the 20th century.

Course highlights: This innovative degree is inspired by the important role played by St Andrews in the early history of the most influential visual medium of the modern era. Students are introduced to the theoretical and methodological challenges and debates that photography’s multiple functions and contexts have provoked since its invention. Classes make full use of the outstanding photographic collections of the University Library and associated archives, such as that held by the National Gallery of Scotland in Edinburgh.
