I recently completed an online photography course titled Seeing Through Photographs. This 6-week course is offered by the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) on Coursera, and is instructed by Sarah Meister, the curator of the Department of Photography.
- Looked closely at photographs from the museum’s collection and helped build skills in looking critically at photographs as images and objects that have agency.
- Explored the diverse ways the medium has been used throughout its history to construct narratives, as a means of artistic expression, as a tool for science, as an instrument of documentation and as a mode of communication and critique.
- Offered a variety of perspectives on what a photograph is and investigated photography’s role in our increasingly visual culture.
You can enroll on the course for free and choose whether you would like to purchase a Certificate in the end. I highly recommend it.
