Overview

Context 

Photographers nowadays are challenged not just technically but – and above all – in the interpretation and rethinking of their own assumptions to expand their knowledge and ideas and become notable contributors to the visual arts culture.

Methodology and structure 

Photography - IED Milan course at Istituto Europeo Di Design (IED)  is an intensive undergraduate program addressed to both technical and creative aspects of current digital and analog image practices.

Students explore all the main areas of photography through an expansive curriculum which includes theoretical, creative and technical skills, contextual subjects (photographic history, arts semiotics, the phenomenology of contemporary arts...) and professional development.

They gradually learn to use the equipment, to set up lighting and shoot pictures both outdoors and in highly specialized environments - such as the photographic studio – and to develop and to print black and white films in the darkroom.

Within each semester students produce technically outstanding and always more conceptually compelling images, learning how to organize their activities, deal with clients and design individual marketing strategies.

Liberal Arts lectures challenge students to understand cultural and social contexts, to read potential shifts in the interpretation of images through historical and contemporary perspectives thus improving their awareness of a wide range of issues.

Students are also invited to enter cross-disciplinary approaches, working collaboratively and respond to external events and activities.

The course is delivered by a team of professional photographers, artists, curators, and journalists, and broadened up by visiting tutors and speakers.
