Vancouver has developed a reputation as a photography hotbed, however mostly based on just a few well-known photographers or lens-based artists, like Jeff Wall, Fred Herzog, Ian Wall, Ken Lum and Rodney Graham. The era from which these photographers emerged, the 1960s and 1970s, was a focal point of creativity and experimentation by many other lesser-known photographers, in fields from documentary to fine art. Join us for an introduction to great works by an amazing group of photographers who left a lasting visual legacy.
This course is for anyone with an interest in photography and art history in British Columbia.
