Join Brenton Hamilton for an 8-week  session discussing the trends in photography from the 2000’s forward until now. Look at major figures working in the medium in a myriad of ways – from the experimenters to the new documentarians. This is not a chronological look – but a wide and varied commentary on the state of the medium in current practice. New photography and its consequences.
