This year's LCC MA Photography Final Exhibition brings together an impressively diverse collection of work that affirms the dynamism of contemporary photographic practice and addresses some of its key preoccupations.
Approaches range from traditional documentary, through conceptual, to the creation of miniature landscapes from cotton wool and tin foil, which are photographed to look deceptively real. Some of the subjects explored include gay middle-age identity, culture-led regeneration, memory and migration, burlesque and femininity, fairy tales and elliptical narratives. Throughout the exhibition, there is a strong sense of the individual; the collection defies any hint of a uniform house style.
The MA Photography at the London College of Communication is now in its tenth year. During that time a distinctive mode of research-based practice has developed which emphasises conceptual strength as well as technical and aesthetic resolution. This is the second year since the introduction of the one-year full-time mode, which now successfully runs alongside the well-established two-year part-time mode. The course has been taught by a number of prominent figures in photography, including Anne Williams, Lucy Soutter, Val Williams, Carey Young, Sophy Ricketts, and Craig Smith.
