Damian Owen-Board

Damian convenes the undergraduate photography courses, teaching at all levels of the BA Media & Communications, BA Media & Sociology and BA Anthropology & Media programmes. He also coordinates the undergraduate degree show.
Damian is an artist working in photography, video and installation whose work has been included in solo and group exhibitions both in the UK and internationally. His current work examines the institutionalised space as metaphor for queerness and ‘othering’ – eschewing the everyday banality of these locations by intervening in ways that create an unease and sense of dread.

Previously Damian's practice has explored ideas around the cinematic spectacle and the dichotomy of high and low art through the constructs of genre cinema and questioned the differences between cinematic and photographic narratives in terms of how audiences relate to the truth in storytelling.
Damian has also worked as a picture editor for a variety of publications, including The Financial Times and Glamour.

Goldsmiths Photoworks is a project space and archive of BA Media & Communications Photography students studying at Goldsmiths, University of London. This website shows a selection of the past and current photographic work that exemplifies the challenging and forward thinking approach taken by students specialising in this area.
