Nine Lives of a Street Photographer

Wednesdays May 16 – June 20, 2012 6:00 – 7:50pm SFU Downtown campus Harbour Centre room 1505

As soon as photographers took their cumbersome cameras onto the streets, a new genre was born. Almost as old as photography itself is the fascination to immortalize the life on the stage of city streets. This course offers an in-depth study of the history of the street photography genre, and will take you on a long journey through various times and places to explore the genreā€™s beginnings through the end of its golden era in the 1980s. Lectures will be supplemented by drawing upon a large range of visual materials.
