In January 2010 second year students from Documentary Photography, along with a small group of students from our partner institution, The Royal Academy in Holland, participated in ‘Network Week UK’.
‘Network Week UK’ is a week long series of visits to many of the UK’s leading photographers and photographic institutions. This is a great opportunity for the students to have firsthand experience of some of the work methods and business practices of these eminent individuals and institutions. This is an annual event, which was preceded by our students participating in a series of similar visits to eminent Dutch practitioners in Holland. The UK visits included visits to the following people:
Anna Fox, Martin Parr, Nigel Shafran, Magnum, Karren Knorr, Brian Griffin, Mark Power, Clare Strand, Photoworks, Simon Norfolk, Victoria and Albert Museum, The Photographers Gallery, Simon Roberts, Boot Books, Smith Design, Val Williams, Am Nuden Da, Broomberg and Chanarin, Stuart Griffiths, Foto 8, Wyatt Clarke Jones, Jocelyn Bain Hogg, Adam Hinton, Tom Hunter,Melanie Friend, David Moore, Marco Santucci, Andrew Buurman and Ed Clarke.
