Course summary

This programme takes a broad-based view of the medium of photography in the context of contemporary art and encourages students to experiment with a wide range of working methods and create diverse outcomes. Our approach to photographic practice combines critical thinking with technical expertise to pose new questions about the role of image in the contemporary context and push the boundaries of how images are created and conceptualised. Studio-based explorations, which are at the centre of your learning experience on this programme, take place with reference to the contributions of relevant historical and contemporary practitioners whose work you will be exploring and discussing in detail. Through a combination of set and self-initiated projects we support you to create a personal approach to both digital and analogue photographic processes and outcomes, in order to produce work which is vibrant in the current society and can adapt to rapid change. These are skills that can be also easily transferred to creative contexts of other kinds beyond the limits of how photography functions within contemporary art contexts.
