Bio

My name is Ryan Hobe. I am a student at the New York City College of Technology. I like to play basketball for fun. I take pride in the fact that I am independent, living on my own, and supporting myself although i have a loving family that would do anything for me if i needed help. Im not sure what I would like to do in the future as far as a career, but I like to work with my hands and be outside around other people. Engineering seems to be a good field to find that type of work environment. I would like to be comfortable in my old age as well as keeping my family comfortable. The only way to do this is to ensure a good future by landing a good job. I have many problems and daily stresses, as everybody else does, but I try not to let it get in the way of my education and goals. Hard work pays off.

ARTH1100 History of Photography Fall 2016

ARTH1100 History of Photography Fall 2016

“A photograph is a secret about a secret. The more it tells you the less you know..” — Diane Arbus This course surveys the history of photography from its beginnings in the early nineteenth century to the present. We will examine the use of photography for aesthetic, documentary, and “scientific” purposes, stylistic shifts in photography related to aesthetic concerns, and varying interpretations of subject matter based on social and cultural concerns at specific moments in history. We will also consider the relationship between photography and the visual arts in general, which culminates with the primacy of photography as a medium by the late twentieth century.

Being in Brooklyn

Being in Brooklyn

Prof. Justin Davis, SPE 1330 Prof. Jody Rosen, ENG 1101 Brooklyn is a collection of neighborhoods and location, a microcosm of the world. This semester our Being in Brooklyn Learning Community will explore Brooklyn through archives at the Brooklyn Historical Society and library research, integrating our own experiences in the City Tech vicinity. Our goal is to communicate effectively, through reading and writing and listening and speaking, what it means to exist in Brooklyn. We will use a variety of approaches including spoken and written assignments that employ Web 2.0 technologies including City Tech’s OpenLab digital platform as well as YouTube and Google Maps. These assignments will create a digital archive of life in Brooklyn that will be available to explore in the future.
