Taking pictures all the time or following all the best Instagram accounts doesn’t necessarily mean you know what you’re doing (or even looking at). Luckily the Museum of Modern Art is here to help! Seeing Through Photographs is the first online course open to the general public en masse.
Drawing on content from MoMA’s own collection, the aim of the course is to bridge the gap between seeing a photograph and actually understanding how it works by exposing participants to various perspectives on what photography is and how it’s used. And not just today but throughout history! The course also makes use of various media: short films, video conversations, and audio slideshows featuring artist interviews.

Equal parts mesmerizing and unsettling, Yoshimitsu Umekawa’s photographs are positively (and negatively) nuclear, drawing on the issues and anxieties that surround modern day Japan. See more images below.
Kevin Faingnaert is a documentary photographer from Gent, Belgium. We came across his work via our January Reader Submissions (submit your own work).

Tel-Aviv born and now London-based photographer Ori Gersht electrocutes mirrors, capturing them right at the moment the glass shatters. That the mirrors are reflecting flowers is an added bonus. Not only are the resulting images beautiful, they recall Gersht’s work from a few years ago. Although, in that case, it was the flowers themselves that were blown up. More images from Gersht’s latest project, as well as video from his previous, below!
