Speakers: Professor Mohamed Sobhy

Some photographers adopted Pictorialism, emulating painting and etching, while others wanted to stress the aesthetic qualities of photographs stemming from photographic techniques.
The Presentation will discuss the relation between Art and Photography since the inception of photography in the 19th century and give examples of how the two artistic media influenced each other.
Towards the end of the 19th century, the development of photographic apparatus and techniques enabled photographers to tackle the subjects outside their studios.
This led to the development of Candid Photography Photojournalism and Street Photography. No other media was able to achieve the results like those of photographers such as Erich Salomon, Dorothea Lange and Henri Cartier – Bresson. The contribution the photographic medium had on society will be discussed.
