Photography as Performance Short Course

Photography as Performance Short Course

Central Saint Martins
Taught by
Diego Ferrari


This five week-long photography course takes its inspiration from a multidisciplinary approach to photography and its affinities with spatial design and architecture. Students will create a new body of photographic work by working with concepts and aesthetics of architecture, design and the human body.

Geometry, angles, perspective and architecture will be explored via photography. We will develop and expand participants’ ability to produce innovative photographic narratives. We will use ephemeral materials to make our own artistic installations and interventions in space, which will form part of our photographic work, as we Venture into exploring Space.

This multidisciplinary approach is ideal for those who want to explore or who already have a basis in either photography, architecture or performance and who want to expand their creative practice. It is an ideal course for students with an interest in architecture, interior design, fashion and performance.
