|Content||From the earliest daguerreotypes, the city and its architecture have been the subject of the unique vision of the camera. This elective unit explores this relationship through a theoretical and historical investigation. Through a series of thematic lectures, the nature of photography as both a unique record of time and place as well as a tool of a critical interpretation of architecture, landscape and urbanism is explored.|
|Outcomes||Students are able to (1) develop a knowledge of the history of the medium through which much of the understanding of the built environment is gained; and (2) a critical appreciation and understanding of the nature of representation of architecture, landscape and urbanism in the photographic medium.|
|Assessment||Typically this unit is assessed in the following ways: (1) tutorial presentation; (2) tutorial paper; and (3) essay. Further information is available in the unit outline.|
Supplementary assessment is not available in this unit.
