The course situates fashion photography within a range of social, cultural and theoretical models of practice and dissemination. Students develop significant project work - based on personal, professional and collaborative initiatives - that comes to define new possibilities of fashion photography within the media and its potential reach.
Content and Structure
MA Fashion Photography relates directly to its philosophy and structure and remains based essentially on practice, as opposed to theory.
The course explores the rhetoric of fashion photographic production and contextualises theory and practice within fine art, popular culture and mass media. Through photographic practice, you will examine social, cultural and critical issues involved in the practice of fashion photography and the impact and construction of the fashion image as a spectacle. In broad terms, it is a multidisciplinary framework for independent study leading to an original body of photographic or written work proposed and negotiated by you.
