Contemporary Narratives - Photography: A Short Guide to History, Theory, and Practice: Online Course Starting April 27th 2022

 


Sign up to my new series of talks on Contemporary Narratives - Photography: A Short Guide to History, Theory, and Practice


Starts on April 27th 2022 and it's perfect if you're thinking of studying photography (this will give you a real taster) or want an introduction to photographic theory, or a dip back into some of the images and ideas that have shaped photographic history. 



Are you looking to develop your own practice? Do you want to understand what photography is or can be? This 8-week course will introduce you to the contemporary practice of photography through examples that link the historical, the contemporary, and the theoretical in a way that is dynamic, visual, and accessible to everybody.

Touching on post-war themes ranging from photographing family, atrocity, and fiction, it will look at some of the key photographers and ideas that have shaped how we see the world today and will also present a global, pluralist outlook on both the wonderful expressive and artistic qualities of the photographic image, as well as its darker side.

The lecture series is the second of two standalone eight-week courses. 

This series of lectures is ideal for anybody who wants to learn how images are made and understood. It will enrich your understanding of the multiple ways in which images can be read, and will also add layers to how you make images and how you communicate those images to a broader audience. If you have never studied photography, these lectures will give you a fast track introduction to the history of photography and its theory. And if you have studied photography, it will refresh old  ideas and present new possibilities that will refresh your understanding of what photography is and what it can be.

Cost is £160 for each series of 8 weeks
