British photographic history

Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history

Publication: How Change Happens: Photography, Education and Society

There was a paradigm shift in the way photography was taught in Britain in the 1960/70s. In How Change Happens: Photography Education and Society May McWilliams uses four colleges - Derby College/Trent Poly, Newport College, London College of Printing, Regent Street Polytechnic -  as case studies to illustrate the change. Oral history accounts of the main players bring the story to life. She sets the changes in photographic education within the broader context of changes in higher education and society.  

Another shift is taking place now. In the final chapter she considers the challenges for photography educators today and draws parallels with the 1970s.
