A Century Of Progressive Photography Through The Lens Of Arthur Rothstein

Since the 1920s, photography has been a dynamic element of the cultural landscape, but images have also been used to document, expose, and explain societal problems. Governments and reform advocates have employed images and photo-stories to inspire or provoke political supporters and opponents at every level, from the neighborhood to the national. This course will draw on the life and work of Arthur Rothstein, one of America’s foremost documentary photographers and photojournalists, to explore the powerful influence of visual images and photo stories on our evolving national character.
