The New Topographic photographers acknowledged people’s interaction with the land by picturing built urban environments. It signaled a new approach to landscape photography that adopted an aesthetic of apparent objectivity, while taking as its subject matter the effects of humanity on the modern landscape.
In this course, students visited both urban and suburb areas in Hong Kong during multiple field trips and reflected insightfully on modern land use through their photographic expression.
