Student Profile(s)

Samantha Fox

"The program helped me understand how I might merge my interest in photography and visual communication with my interest in more theoretical academic pursuits."

Gemma Lynch

"I also wanted to be able to discuss creative ideas in depth and create networking oppor-tunities. I certainly never focussed on one project at the level of detail I am now, and that is thanks to the masters. [...] The course Space and Place has had a massive impact on me and I think it will remain an integral part of the way I think about my work and life in general. Documentary Photography has also been fundamental in giving my ideas more structure and scope. I find that I work better when I am forced to respect a deadline, otherwise its too easy to procrastinate and struggle to make tangible progress. Having papers due or films to deliver on time means you work to a schedule and then you have a finished project that you can share and reflect on. Generally speaking, I think I also have a much better attention span now, being forced to read so much and go deeper on singular topics is an experience that I have found immensely useful and is a transferable skill."
