WHY CHOOSE THIS COURSE?

Learn from people who are 'shaking up photographic education’ (WIRED Magazine).

Work with innovators: 'breaking new ground for photographers' (EU Parliament TV).

Be part of our networked and distributed approaches: 'amazing', 'opens up the whole process of how you teach photography at a university' (P2PU Exec. Dir. Philipp Schmidt).

WHAT WILL I LEARN?

Our students are taken seriously as motivated and committed media-producers and peers. We have built a creative environment in which experimental and innovative ways of working are encouraged and supported. You’ll be a part of an approach to teaching and learning that values collaboration and live practical engagement over broadcast instruction and rote-learning.

Our explicit aim is to foster innovative and sustainable responses to the seismic shifts currently redefining the post-digital photographic landscape.

Modules:

  • The Photographic Artefact: Print, File and Ephemera
    Engendering informed and empowered artisans, able to realise the medium as artefact thereby leveraging its unique and inherent value.
  • The Post-Photographer: Storytelling, Curation and Collaboration
    Transiting from traditional photographic supplier into an informed post-photographic storytelle.
  • The Photo-publisher: Platforms, Hubs and the Pamphleteers
    Developing the knowledge and skills to transit from the traditional role of content supplier, to one of post-photographic publisher.
  • Hyper-photography: The Medium, the Media and the Mediated
    Informed ownership of your practice, foregrounding the knowledge and skills necessary to realise a photographic concept - from pre-visualisation to 'publication-ready' artefact.
  • Masters Photographic Practice
    A self-directed major project and opportunity develop a body of work with a distinct authorial identity, underpinned by intellectual engagement at Masters level.
