Photography at Manchester Metropolitan is a future-facing programme that considers what photography is within the diverse contexts of art and digital media. Students engage with a huge gamut of approaches and applications, from experimental practices with new and existing technologies to documentary enquiry and new methodologies for storytelling that challenge traditional representations. At the heart of the course is a creative enquiry, alongside a rigorously professional approach in which students are eager to collaborate with others as well as develop diverse independent practices.

This year’s graduates have overcome significant disruption due to the pandemic, yet their work demonstrates some of the finest work to emerge from the course to date. Collectively the work showcased here presents a document of our time, illustrating how a generation has retained their creative energy during such a difficult period. This varied body of work also shows the diversity of the medium, with portraiture, landscape and fashion practices alongside experimental and conceptual works that challenge the expanded practices of photography, from traditional analogue processes to computer generated imagery.

This showcase demonstrates that the medium of photography is in good hands with these graduates and I am sure they will go on to achieve great things in their future. We look forward to seeing more from them.
