MoMA Offers Free Online Photography Course

moma

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. Check out Coursera.org for more information!
