Photography from Royal College of Art aims to provide a critical and educational environment in which you can develop as an artist with photography at the core of your practice. We have a fluid approach to image making. Whether still or moving, analogue or digital, the photographic image is, for us, thoughtful as well as playful: an allegorical and thoroughly visual form. 


Photography from Royal College of Art understands photography as a discourse that encompasses and extends across multiple practices. This disregard for a fixed essence is photography’s strength: no aesthetic purity but a range of rhetorical forms used for the creation of fact, fiction and fantasy. Equally the boundary between the still and the moving image is fluid and porous, enabling new forms of image making to be created and disseminated.

Students at Photography from Royal College of Art will:

  • Evaluate and critique the principles and methods of research in their field(s) of study, and apply these principles to their creative, professional and/or scholarly practice; 
  • Demonstrate originality in how they translate knowledge into practice; 
  • Communicate their creative, professional and/or scholarly practice to a non-specialist audience;
