Sotheby's Institute Offers Photo Degree


Sotheby's Institute of Art-London is offering a master's program in historic and contemporary photography, starting in September 2006. The MA in Photography, Historic and Contemporary, is intended to reflect the shift in the way that photography is received and understood. Master's candidates will acquire the skills needed to appreciate and analyze photography in terms of intention, production, encounter and interpretation, better preparing them for careers in art with specializations in the photographic medium.

The course will look at photography's role in a variety of social and cultural contexts, including photojournalism, documentary practice, vernacular environments and fashion. The course will consider the full range of ways in which artists engage with photography to make art, from 19th-century daguerreotypes to conceptual art's use of the snapshot.
