MA Photography at London College of Communication offers a variety of conceptual approaches to thinking, writing and exhibiting photography. As a research-led course, it will equip you for a wider inquiry into the interdisciplinary aspects of the photographic medium as you develop a single exhibition project over the 15-month duration of the course. 

What can you expect?

MA Photography at London College of Communication offers a variety of conceptual approaches to thinking, writing and exhibiting photography.

Situated within the Media School, we understand photography as an interdisciplinary medium, that expands as an effect on, and of culture. 

As part of the respective project development, we interrogate the agency of a piece of work and its relationship with the viewer, in a post-documentary environment, alongside thinking about non-representational strategies in installation.

We encourage students to work experimentally and produce work that tests the boundaries of the medium, encompassing the still image, video, installation, performance and digital media, and culminating in a public exhibition.

The Media School offers a longstanding tradition of photography education with a highly regarded research culture, and the course has close ties with the Photography and the Archive Research Centre (PARC) and The Stanley Kubrick Archive, both based at London College of Communication. Located close to central London, the course has excellent links with galleries, museums and archives.

MA Photography attracts a broad range of practitioners, from backgrounds in fine art photography, documentary photography, commercial photography and other areas of media practice. They are united by a desire to develop a distinctive personal practice with a high level of conceptual resolution.
