Course Description:

Join us for an unforgettable overview of powerful photographs that are hauntingly beautiful and also somber documents of our fragile, ever-changing environment. We'll explore photographic essays by dedicated artists who use photography as a means to portray our natural world and champion awareness of the need for conservation. Beginning with William Henry Jackson's photographs of Yellowstone in the 1870s, we'll view the work of contemporary photographers including Nick Brandt's heart-rending imagery of African animals on the brink of extinction, Camille Seaman's austere photographs of rapidly melting ice caps, as well as the work of many other concerned artists.
