Call for Applications: International Urban Photography Summer School

Deadline: 15 May 2015 - 12:00am


Designed for photographers, artists and ethnographers 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. Held every year in August, 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 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 field trips focusing on (1) landscape, (2) material objects / street photography and (3) portraiture.

The Summer School will provide participants with a structured framework of theoretical talks, discussions and debates, visual presentations, critiques and assignments culminating in a self directed visual project focusing on the urban domain. This will lead to the development of a photographic portfolio reflecting their individual interest and visual practice in relation to urban research.

To secure a place candidates are advised to apply early. There is a maximum of 30 places. Application forms are available to download online via the iUPSS website.
