In the Visual Arts Photography major, the development of each student’s individual style and vision is key. We see photography as a reflection of an existing or fictional reality, an important language for the expression of feelings and ethics.
The student gets the opportunity to develop his or her own visual style and working methods within different genres (fashion, advertising, architecture, still life, dance, theatre, landscape, portrait, reportage, documentary, etc.).
The students are individually supervised, stimulated and motivated to explore the medium extensively. This study enables them to develop a unique authorship within the realm of photography. Common ground with, and differences from other media such as plastic, audio-visual and digital arts are examined: both as an artistic accomplishment and as application within the cultural field.
The Photography department teaches students to become independent, artistic and innovative photographers or visual designers with a desire to further explore their knowledge and critical insight into the scientific/theoretical or intellectual/critical discourse. By the end of the course the student is able to provide products, research or services in the sector of visual and audio-visual media at a young graduate level, both independently and as part of a team.
