This subject explores the inextricable link between research and photographic practice. Research is the foundation from which student's propose and develop a body of studio work for Graduation Exhibition. This subject supports students to develop 'work in progress' that is conceptually, technically and aesthetically of exhibition and industry standard. This is supported by technical workshops where students refresh and develop technical skills. Students are encouraged to collaborate on industry-based tasks as well as work independently on their major project. Students engage with research, analysis, peer feedback and develop critical thinking skills relevant to contemporary image-based practices. This subject facilitates a transition to creative industries, independent practice and further honours study. Students learn to communicate clearly and effectively in class, in feedback sessions, presentations, written tasks and in group work.
