Course Description

From the very start, photographers began to turn a new technology into an art form. Mr. Goldberg, a discerning student of this transformational process, will show you how it played out.  He’s particularly interested in helping us explore the decisions photographers make as they practice their craft, with close looks at some of the great works that resulted from inspired choices of subject, angles of vision, and other subtle aspects of the craft.  No experience in photography is required or expected if you sign up for the course, and you need never point a camera in the future.  But let OLLI and Mr. Goldberg hone your appreciation for the art a technology can produce in the hands of creative genius.
