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.
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.
