iUPSS - International Urban Photography Summer School, 14th - 26th August 2017
Designed for photographers, artists and researchers whose work address notions of urban space and culture, the international Urban Photography Summer School provides a highly intensive two-week practical and theoretical training in key aspects of urban visual practice and research. The course aims to offer participants a wide range of relevant skills resulting in the production of a photography portfolio drawn from London’s urban environments along with a collective final exhibition.
The programme has been developed in collaboration with the Centre for Urban and Community Research (CUCR), Goldsmiths University London, the Urban Photographers’ Association (UPA), UrbanPhotoFest and the International Association of Visual Urbanists (iAVU). The course will be taught by tutors from Goldsmiths’ Sociology Department and the international MA in Photography and Urban Cultures. The programme draws on the advanced theoretical, research and practical image-making specialisms of key practitioners in the field.
Summer School tutors include: Paul Halliday (MA in Photography and Urban Cultures Course Leader, Goldsmiths, UOL), Les Back (Goldsmiths, UOL), Caroline Knowles (Head of CUCR, Goldsmiths, UOL), Mandy Lee Jandrell (Southampton Solent University), Peter Coles (Goldsmiths, UOL), Manuel Vázquez (Goldsmiths, UOL), Laura Cuch (Goldsmiths, UOL and UCL), Diego Ferrari (Kingston University), David Kendall (Goldsmiths, UOL) and Gill Golding (Goldsmiths, UOL).
The programme will explore how the practice of urban image-making informs the development of a reflexive and critical research perspective and will include assignments and guided fieldtrips focusing on (1) Urban Landscapes and Architectures, (2) Urban Materialities and Objects (3) Street-based photography and Portraiture.
The Summer School will take place from 14th - 26th August 2017
