Designed for photographers, artists and researchers whose work addresses notions of urban space and culture, the international Urban Photography Summer School provides a highly intensive two-week practical and theoretical training in key aspects of urban visual practice and research. The course aims to offer participants a wide range of relevant skills resulting in the production of a photography portfolio inspired by London’s urban environments.
The programme has been developed in collaboration with the Centre for Urban and Community Research (CUCR), Goldsmiths University London, the Urban Photographers’ Association (UPA), UrbanPhotoFest and the international Association of Visual Urbanists (iAVU). The course will be taught by tutors from the Urban Photographers Association, Goldsmiths’ Sociology Department and the international MA in Photography and Urban Cultures. The programme draws on the advanced theoretical, research and practical image-making specialisms of key practitioners in the field.
The programme will explore how the practice of urban image-making informs the development of a reflexive and critical research perspective and will include assignments and guided fieldtrips focusing on:
- Urban Landscapes and Architectures
- Urban Materialities and Objects
- Street-based photography and Portraiture
The Summer School will take place from 13th-25th August 2018.
Application Deadline is 30th June 2018.
