This edition of Workshop Atelier is centred on an interrogation of the photographic print, its materiality, evolution, and currency in contemporary art practice. Through a series of projects students will consider historical and theoretical strategies to image making and question the condition, relevance, and enduring importance of the photographic print within digital culture today. 


 Traversing both the darkroom and the print studio, students will develop their critical knowledge and practical photographic skills associated with the use of 35mm, medium format and digital cameras. Students will have the opportunity to extend their understanding of print collecting and exhibition practices through visits to art institutions, guest critiques and panel discussions with specialists.


Advanced darkroom printing techniques, proofing methods and ways in which to prepare image files for digital output will be investigated. As well as this, diverse methods of photo-installation for the purposes of exhibition will be examined, toward a final public outcome.

  1. demonstrate an understanding of techniques, processes and concepts taught as part of the course;
