Talk: Photography, Theory and Practice: British Photography Education After 1960

As the cradle for both global and domestic photographic talents, Britain has always been a frontier in British photography education, which keeps focusing on the critical thinking and creativity in their students under the principle of interdisciplinary speculative knowledge. Graduates from such education usually impress the public as well as enrich the entire British photography with their personal ideas and practices into new curriculums. Based on a research on the modern British photography history, this lecture is about to conduct the audience through the changes and stages of its photography education under the influence of British politics, and to explore the current cases in nowadays universities featuring how different teaching modes make a difference to the photographers.

Britain pioneered the concept that photography was a profession requiring both knowledge and analytical thought by setting up the BA/BSc programmes at the Regent St Poly. Rochester (USA) had a similar programme but it was tied to Kodak. It was a stimulating and joyous experience to spend those three years at the Poly in the early '70s.
