The photographic image takes on many forms, from the fleeting pixels on the mobile screen to the fine print or photo book. Rather than focusing on images as 'pictures', this course explores how photographs are objects which can be touched, exchanged, exhibited, archived and distributed in different ways. Students will undertake a series of projects which will introduce them to fine printing skills, and advanced techniques in scanning, image manipulation and output. Studio briefs will encourage experimentation with different types of formats and processes, and introduce historical and theoretical approaches to photographic materiality. A range of contemporary practitioners and their methodologies will be examined, in order to explore advanced exhibition and distribution strategies for photomedia practice.
Upon successful completion, students will have the knowledge and skills to:
- demonstrate competency with a range of advanced technical skills in relation to contemporary photographic practice;
- experiment with photographic formats, forms and material processes in response to workshop briefs;
- apply knowledge of the historical, cultural and theoretical contexts of photographic materiality to the development and execution of studio projects; and
- evaluate the impact of chosen studio methodologies on the outcomes of studio projects.
School of Art & Design studio courses have a limited enrolment capacity. Students are advised to enrol as early as possible to maximise the opportunity of securing a place.
