By retaining single subject degrees in Fine Art at undergraduate level, Camberwell offers students the chance to study in-depth painting, sculpture, photography and drawing, while still enabling students to access cross-course teaching and facilities, as well as work with their peers in other Fine Art areas.
All undergraduate Fine Art students at Camberwell attend cross-course crits and tutorials throughout their course, even though they are primarily based in their own subject areas.
Work experience and opportunities
BA Photography students have the opportunity to exhibit their work at external venues in London, with previous spaces having included Shoreditch Town Hall and Southwark's The Biscuit Factory.
During their second year, students also have the chance to take part in an exchange programme with leading international art schools in New York, Tokyo, Milan, Madrid and Brussels amongst others.
Duncan Wooldridge is a photographer, curator and art critic who uses different methods of mechanical reproduction to explore the ideas of possession, authorship and interruption.
Working directly onto postcards found in museum gift shops, Wooldridge's practice highlights the flawed nature of recreating conceptual and minimalist artworks onto documents. By slightly modifiying these commercialised reproductions of original artworks, Wooldridge further complicates the way art history is revised, interpreted and exchanged by entwining his own mythology into the process.
Our BA Photography graduates have exhibited their work in major UK competitions and exhibitions, including The Photographer’s Gallery’s Fresh Faced and Wild Eyed exhibition of most promising graduates, Saatchi New Sensations, Sony Professional Photography Awards and The Sovereign Asian Art Prize.
Others have gone on to work for major galleries and publishers, whilst many former students progress to postgraduate study.
