University of the Arts London

Course Introduction

This course relates directly to its philosophy and structure and remains based essentially on practice, as opposed to theory. The course explores the rhetoric of fashion photographic production and contextualises theory and practice within fine art, popular culture and mass media. Through photographic practice, students will examine social, cultural and critical issues involved in the practice of fashion photography and the impact and construction of the fashion image as a spectacle. In broad terms, it is a multidisciplinary framework for independent study leading to an original body of photographic or written work proposed and negotiated by the student.

Course Modules

Modules include: Research methods; collaborative unit; interplays: fashion and photography; new iterations in fashion photography; Master's project.
