Since the invention of photography in the early 19th century, portrait photography has been an important part of the human experience. Portrait photography preserves the history of people, from the famous to the ordinary. And, at its best, portrait photography can capture the personality and character of a person. In this class, you will learn about the evolution and history of portrait photography, from the iconic portrait photographs of the 19th and 20th centuries to the selfies of today.
Instructor Terry Nathan is a professor in the Art/Science Fusion Program at the University of California, Davis, where he also teaches Photography: Bridging Art and Science.
