Please note: space on Media Practice modules is very limited. Only students for whom a practice module is a requirement of their home institution's course will be considered for a place on these modules, and always subject to availability.

This module builds on the practical and conceptual skills acquired in Approaches to Media Practice: Photography, which is a pre-requisite. You develop and produce a photographic project, making use of photographic documentary theory and history, as well as enhancing your knowledge of research methods, production techniques and processes. You will reflect critically on your project, drawing on your critical and practical study of relevant genres. You will work to realize set exercises in and out of class, and produce a completed project to a set brief.
