About

The MA Photography course at Leeds Arts University promotes innovation and experimentation. Through an examination of contemporary photographic practices you will learn to contextualise cultural and ethical uses of photography within a range of different photographic genres.

Overview

The MA Photography course at Leeds Arts University will examine strategies to resolve projects into different outputs such as publications, exhibitions and digital platforms, as well as emphasising the need to find an audience as being integral to a sustained and successful practice.

Key facts:

There will be opportunities for external visits and the chance to attend events such as the Unseen in Amsterdam, Photo Paris and Photo London in order to enable engagement with the wider photographic community and industry. You will be able to attend talks by visiting professionals to the University, with examples of previous speakers including: Martin Parr, Erik Kessels, Cristina de Middel, Guy Martin, Bruno Cescel, Anouk Kruithof, Ewen Spencer and Elaine Constantine.

Programme Structure

Curriculum:

  • MA Photography students are able to access professional standard digital print facilities (including film scanning) and fully rigged lighting studios by arrangement on one evening per week and on Saturdays during the standard academic year.
  • Based in our postgraduate hub, students will have access to a range of resources to support their learning. These include open access to our library and general computer suites which are equipped with up to date industry standard software related to creative practices. Our digital printing facility also allows large scale, professional quality output up to A0. Further specialist facilities that are available according to course disciplines are outlined on the following pages where applicable.
  • We embrace a post studio culture in our postgraduate teaching. This encourages our graduates to sustain a practice. We therefore expect postgraduate students to have access to their own studios or workspaces.
