Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) Launches Free Course on Looking at Photographs as Art
In our new, free online course, “Seeing Through Photographs,” curator Sarah Meister speaks with artists and scholars to reveal the many different factors that inform the making of a photograph.
Curator Sarah Meister takes us through a range of documentary photographs from early in photography’s history to the present day. Although we often make a direct parallel between a photograph’s subject and its meaning, Meister explains that a picture is rarely a perfect reproduction of the real world.
"The power of photography is more complicated than people admit to," explains author and scholar Marvin Heiferman in a conversation with curator Sarah Meister about the ubiquity and consequentiality of photographic images.
