Photography

As a student on Brighton's MA Photography course you can expect a creative and critical environment in which to practise and think about photography. The fine art focused approach to photographic practice at Brighton allows you to benefit from the course's close relationship with work in moving image and sound, developing your own interests through individual research projects. At Brighton you will develop a strong professional identity as an independent practitioner. Your course tutors are experienced professional photographers and photographic researchers working across a range of cutting-edge practice. Many of our students have enjoyed critical success for their photography. In recent years photography students have been awarded first place and runners-up in many of the most prestigious photography awards including the Jerwood Photography Prize, the Association of Photographers Photography Student of the Year Award, and the Guardian Newspaper Photography Student of the Year Award. The practice and analysis of photography on the MA Photography course at Brighton aims to engender a culture fully committed to testing the boundaries of the medium and pushing at the edges of the discipline so as to develop a conception of what photography is and how it might be used and interpreted in the future.
