Exploring Photography: The History of Photography.

EXPLORING PHOTOGRAPHY: THE HISTORY OF PHOTOGRAPHY. Mc Intyre Visual Publications, Inc., 251 Portage Road, Lewiston, NY 14092, (716) 282-4181, VHS format, forty-three minutes, $49.00.

This videotape is one of the many that are a translation of sound-film-strip packages which are standards in many school systems. This offering folds a set of three presentations into a three-part video, making them more consistent with contemporary technology and instructional strategies. The video leads viewers through the nineteenth century origins of photography, the twentieth century expansion of the art form, and the scope of photography today. Viewers become well informed about photographic benchmarks including technology, techniques and aesthetics.

A teacher's guide accompanies the "videostrip" providing teachers with content that makes the utilization of this resource effective and efficient in classroom situations. The content of the tape is well articulated, well illustrated and easily understandable to middle school and secondary students.
