Our Documentary Photography and Visual Activism degree course at Swansea College of Art UWTSD teaches students traditional, practical documentary and photojournalistic skills alongside contemporary strategies for becoming visual activists, who empower their subjects whilst engaging with communities and networks to raise awareness about inequality and injustice as a means for social change.
“The new course in Documentary Photography & Visual Activism at Swansea College of Art UWTSD rightly challenges documentary photography norms and embraces expanding its meaning, a perfect fit for this moment in time as documentary photography is being transformed by digital technology, social media and new means of distribution.”
Michelle Bogre, Professor Emerita, Parsons School of Design, NYC and author of the new book from Bloomsbury Press: Documentary Photography Reconsidered: Theory, History and Practice.
