Bio

Greetings! My name is Gennessy Palma and I am a Communication Design Major. I chose this major for the reason of broad options. Communication Design is made up of different fields be it web design or graphic design, so on and so forth. In my free time I love to write and practice calligraphy. My two passions are calligraphy and photography. I enjoy taking photos of things that calms my mind such as nature and city life. I prefer to take photos of said topics because it brings me peace, something about the scenery and the color schemes brings our serenity and helps me release stress.

ARTH1100 TU/TH History of Photography S2018

ARTH1100 TU/TH History of Photography S2018

“I went into photography because it seemed like the perfect vehicle for commenting on the madness of today’s existence.” — Robert Mapplethorpe 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.
