Manchester Metropolitan University
In the course, you will be encouraged to test and push the boundaries of the photographic medium. You will explore approaches to visual narrative, including the photographic and cinematic, and evaluate the relationship between photography and texts/sound/space. You will primarily use digital and analogue photographic technologies, but may also develop your practical skills through media such as moving image and bookbinding. Particular themes will explore photography in relation to context: portfolio, book art, gallery, screen and installed space. You will develop your own philosophy to photography and are expected to consider and evaluate your work in relation to the current photographic discourse on the shifting genres and boundaries caused by advancing technologies.
You will normally have an undergraduate UK Honours degree or international equivalent or a degree-equivalent postgraduate diploma or a professional qualification. Alternatively, you may be admitted if you can demonstrate appropriate knowledge and skills at Honours degree standard. In addition, you may also need to submit a digital portfolio.
Core modules: Media project synopsis; media project development; photography major project; professional platforms. Options: Contested territories; digital futures; health and wellbeing; images and archives; making our futures (ecological arts and sustainable design); negotiated study; object and context; the museum and the city; writing research and funding proposals.
