This workshop series examines contemporary approaches to the compelling and ever-present subject of the human body and how it is represented in photography. Using the body as a starting point, participants will explore contemporary photographic practice through a range of themed sessions including the digital body, performance, architecture and gendered forms.
This course is open to all however it is particularly suited to those who have a creative practice that may or may not include the human figure and are interested in questioning and re-imagining its presence in photography. Each session will include lectures, group discussion, practical activities and readings. There will also be opportunities to share and discuss participants’ own research and artwork throughout the course though this is of course not compulsory.
