About

The BA Fine Art Photography (Hons) at the University of the Arts London (UAL) begins with photography but expands into the processes that emerge from a global culture of widespread image-making. You will explore the future of the image, its historical and material foundations, its potential as a social and political tool and its status and meaning within fine art and the everyday. 

Overview

What you can expect

  • To test and explore the creative possibilities and limits of photography 
  • Consider the broadest applications of image and material through experimentation
  • To think about documentation, advertising, personal memento, public image and object of expression. To ask how these uses affect our perception of photographic culture 
  • Explore photography’s diverse relationships to the sciences and technologies of vision, including machine vision, physics and neurology, and the history of expanded photographic practices 
  • Be introduced to technical processes from analogue to digital
  • To investigate methods through which your work reaches its audience
  • Explore international ideas about contemporary photographic practice
  • To study the practice of fine art, its history, culture and contemporary position
  • To make work and develop an ethical practice
  • To express and explore your artistic, social and personal interests informed by focussed research
  • To discuss your work through tutorials, seminars, group and cross-course crits
  • Methods and materials workshops and demonstrations by artists and technicians. Some of these will be with our partners across London
  • Opportunities to gain knowledge and experience of collaborative working and socially engaged art practice
  • A lecture programme that gives you a deeper understanding of contemporary fine art practice. It will widen your critical, theoretical, historical knowledge. This is for all Camberwell undergraduate students studying Drawing, Painting, Photography, Sculpture and Computational Arts  
  • To choose between a final year dissertation, performance, practical work placement or live project
  • To take part in external projects with students from across Camberwell's BA Fine Art programme  
  • Course specific lectures, seminars and field trips  
  • To have access to printmaking, photography, film, moving image, digital, plastic, ceramics, wood and metalwork. This enables our students to think of art practices in its’ most expanded form and its relationship to other art forms.

Career opportunities

During the second year all our students can take part in a wide variety of seminars and workshops hosted by a variety of external arts organisations.
