Description

Jewish photographers participated in different aspects of photography—including fashion, portrait, journalism, war, art, landscape, still life, and documentary. The course emphasizes those photographers whose pictures resonated beyond their immediate moment paying particular attention to documentary photography. The course will address historical dimensions of photographers’ lives and the multiple lives of their photographs, how photographers do their work in one context and then subsequently find themselves and their pictures in another. The course will address questions of memory culture and the role of photographers in shaping collective Jewish understandings of the past including World War II and the Holocaust.
