Tutor: Pádraig Spillane
This course explores the concepts, practices and resources used in fine art digital photography with particular reference to narrative. It develops the student’s knowledge and practice of visual storytelling through photography. Emphasis is on project work where students develop a topic or theme and apply a narrative approach to create a sequential series of photographic images. Students are expected to develop their projects outside of class-time for group analysis and discussion within class time.
Pádraig Spillane works with photography, appropriation and object-based assemblages. These different media allow explorations on the boundaries of desire engaging contact points and intersections between images, anthropomorphic arrangements and the viewer.
Students have an opportunity to submit their work for assessment should they wish to gain the CIT Single Module Certification.
