VCA ART 2020

Bachelor of Fine Arts (Photography)

These days anyone and everyone takes photos. But what is a photo and what is the photographic? How do you ‘think’ through the practice of photography to make artworks? How do you apply photographic thinking to develop artworks even without a camera?

Photography at the VCA will challenge you to consider these questions and more as you undergo an immersive experience in contemporary photographic practice and theory. Photography’s history will meet yours as you pursue your own questions and attitudes through making. In a studio-based learning environment we encourage independent exploration using various techniques including black and white darkroom photography, colour darkroom printing, digital imaging and the projected image in installation. With these and many other methods of making you will discover what a photograph can become. And the kind of artist you have become.
