SENSING PLACE: PHOTOGRAPHY AS INQUIRY

Course by Anne Whiston Spirn

This section showcases work done for MIT course 4.215J/11.309, which explores photography as a disciplined way of seeing, as a medium of inquiry, and of expressing ideas. Readings, observations, and photographs form the basis of discussions on landscape, light, significant detail, place, poetics, narrative, and how photography can inform research, design, and planning, among other issues.
