In Year 1 you'll research and experiment with documentary practices, and begin to explore the representation of the urban and rural environment. You'll explore photography's ability to create meaning within relevant theoretical and contextual frameworks, and investigate the constructed image within an historical context. In Year 2 you'll examine key aspects of photographic practices and theory in relation to their historical origins. You'll also begin to engage with how meaning can be constructed within a single image, often referred to as a 'tableau', or across a series of images - learning how to tell a story and guide the viewer to a desired conclusion. In Year 3 you'll produce a dissertation related to the contextual and/or theoretical basis of your chosen area of practice, and also pursue a substantial piece of practical work before your final major project. You'll research, develop and produce a presentation of a substantial photographic project, drawing on all you've learned.
