"Something that’s been particularly significant to me is the friends that I’ve made on my course."

Main details

"I read about the Anthropology and Visual Practice course and I thought ‘this sounds really interesting’. I didn’t want to do a course that focused completely on photography, so this sounded like a great mix of practice and theory.

I’ve always been interested in studying people and culture, but I’ve never done it in depth. At Goldsmiths you cover so much material and so many different places as well. I’ve come to learn, from studying anthropology, that you have to forget your biases and your own ethnocentric opinions when you’re looking at other cultures because in no way is it the same experience to yours. I think that would be very helpful if everyone could have a deeper cultural understanding and knowledge.

Something that’s been particularly significant to me is the friends that I’ve made on my course. There’s such a diverse group of people at here, which has been really really nice."
