In the last years we have seen major changes in the way we experience, consume, produce and think of Photography.

From algorithms affecting how your selfie looks on the fly, instant filters or digital tools for editing in a couple of taps on a screen to reproducing 3D objects and places with 2D based media.

Students in this course will explore different artistic strategies, bridging technologies and topics such as photogrammetry, machine learning, computational photography, image recognition and generation, etc. in order to develop new narratives and strategies in Photography.
