Urban Photography


I teach an introductory course at Swansea on Visual Methodologies: Cities and Photography. Students investigate the use of photography through two Visual Methodologies: Photo-Documentation and Photo-Essays. Students take part in a photo documentation workshop and group photography fieldwork in Swansea City Centre with a study of Swansea High Street. Students complete a photo essay aided by group discussion to select concept, theme, research question, analytical or evocative photographs (or both), and discussion of the links between practice and the visual methodologies literature.
