Photographers – 1


My main question is to ask, what is it that you want specifically from the MA?

Street photography is very popular, but ultimately changes little unless it is in the long form of social documentary. That is to say giving voice to those whose existence is somewhat marginalised or outside of the every day normative experience; work that challenges conventional orthodoxy, and offers insight and perhaps critique, whilst empowering others.
A good person to look at, who has been working since 2010 on a series “Small Town Inertia” is Jim Mortram. Also at the opposite end, but equally offering a sterling critique of British every day life is Niall McDiarmid.
One predominantly black and white, the other a master of colour.
