Photography, as science of sight and poetry of vision, is inextricably intertwined with philosophies that describe what it means to look and to see. When the transition from film to digital made me question the essence of photography education, I began to research philosophies of vision. This presentation will detail my findings that phenomenology offers a different look at vision; a view that resides between science and poiēsis; apart from the dialectic of modernism and postmodernism-both predicated upon a tacit distrust of embodied human vision. Photographers using a phenomenological approach and implication for photography education will be discussed.
