‘The media are not toys… they can be entrusted only to new artists, because they are art forms.’

Course description
Seeing Slowly
with Sue Barr

The American photographer Minor White, claimed that all photographs are essentially self-portraits and the prevalence of the ‘selfie’ in contemporary culture would lead us to believe they are one and the same, but the ‘selfie’ is not reflective or a considered study, it is spontaneous and ephemeral.
This course will explore the carefully composed photograph, whereby engaging with the slowness of analogue photography, the photographer fully controls the image composition, embracing ideas of memory, identity and fiction within the frame.
