Central Saint Martins, University of the Arts London


This course is shaped by challenging and provocative work across traditional and new technologies within photography, printmaking, moving image and communication or networking media, capitalising on the close links between these areas that are a feature of CSM at King's Cross; the development of individual ways of seeing and realising creative intentions; analysis, critical debate and the development of a personal position regarding the ethical and social responsibilities of the photographer; the assertion of the contemporary identity of photography in close, critical and dynamic relation to art and design as disciplinary and professional arenas.
