Photography as Fine Art Brian Stater Wednesday 03 January 2018

 This lecture argues that photography can equal traditional disciplines in the genres of portraiture,landscape and still life.  Indeed photography has its own area of excellence in depicting the human condition.  All these points are discussed by considering works of some masters of photography such as Henri Cartier-Bresson, Fay Godwin, Bill Brandt  and others.

Brian Stater ​who has taught at University College, London since 1997 is chiefly interested in photography, architecture and history. He combines all three interests in his lecturing career.  He is a member of the Association for Historical and Fine Art Photography and an exhibition of his own photographs has been staged at UCL.
