London Metropolitan University
Final Year Show 2021
26 July to 31 August 2021
The BA Photography and the BA Fashion Photography courses at London Metropolitan University’s School of Art, Architecture and Design have a highly supportive learning and creative community that celebrates our wonderfully diverse student cohort. It enables our students to develop their potential and build a confident personal and culturally informed creative identity, and crucially, to understand how to apply this successfully within the professional creative sector.
Our team of tutors are all highly experienced practicing photographers and artists. Drawing on our creative industry experience we help our students understand how to engage with the spectrum of fine art, fashion, documentary, advertising, design and editorial creative practices and how these different ways of working, far from being in opposition, conflict or contradictory, may support and enhance each other.
Students are given the creative freedom to enjoy working on topics, ideas and themes that really matter to them, using the creative forms that excite them most. The work may be within the traditional boundaries of photography, making beautiful black darkroom prints or creating high end polished studio imagery. Equally students may choose to make work that expands the idea of what photography can be, incorporating other areas of creative practice such as video, music, sound, drawing, collage or archival images.
Our students’ creative and professional development is underpinned by rigorous and thorough practical training. Students learn to excel in both analogue and digital technologies. They understand how to make the most of our fantastic black and white and colour darkrooms, high end cameras, industry standard studios and production and post production software, to make photographic prints, shoot video, or create books, magazines, zines and exhibition and installation pieces.
