Description:MA Photography is an international fine art photography course that explores the possibilities of both visual and conceptual expression, merging research deeply with practice. The course is rooted in the idea that photography has no self-limiting identity or essence. In creating work that is visually exciting and intellectually compelling you’ll develop as an artist with photography at the core of your practice, defining, or redefining photography as the art form of 21st Century. The course is led by Daniel Rubinstein, recipient of a 2015 UAL Teaching Award. 2014 award nominations: Sina Michalskaja, Nova Award winner and finalist for the Celeste Prize; Daniel Silva shortlisted for Saatchi 2014 Sensations Prize.
