This programme takes a broad-based view of the medium of photography in the context of contemporary art.
We encourage you to experiment with a wide range of working methods and create diverse outcomes.
Our approach to photographic practice combines critical thinking with technical expertise. We want to pose new questions about the role of image in the contemporary context and push the boundaries of how images are created and conceptualised.
Practical explorations are at the centre of your learning experience.
These take place with reference to the contributions of relevant historical and contemporary practitioners whose work you will be exploring and discussing in detail.
