This 12-week documentary photography course is designed from units taught across level 4 HNC and degree courses. You are taken through the fundamentals of photographic representation and theory alongside a number of practical photography briefs. No previous photography experience is needed, you will be led through the use of digital and analogue photographic equipment. No specialist cameras are required however if you do own a camera (of any kind) please do bring it along.
Each practical brief will give you guidelines, themes and issues to document photographically and weekly crits will give you a chance to evaluate and develop your own photographic style. The course culminates in a self-driven photographic project.
Seminars, lectures and discussion will lead students to explore photographic theory and the ethics of representation. We will look at a number of visual artists and theorists surrounding visual culture encouraging students to question visual representations from past and contemporary photographic practice.
