Welcome to the London Architecture Diary, your essential guide to architecture exhibitions and events taking place across the city, brought to you by New London Architecture.
Designed for photographers, artists, architects and researchers whose work explores notions of urban space and culture, the iUPSS - International Urban Photography Summer School provides an intensive two-week training in key aspects of urban photography, visual practice and research. The course aims to offer participants practical and theoretical skills resulting in a photographic portfolio and a group exhibition at Goldsmiths' drawn from London’s urban environments.
The Summer School has been developed in collaboration with the Centre for Urban and Community Research (CUCR), Goldsmiths University London, the Urban Photographers’ Association (UPA), UrbanPhotoFest and the International Association of Visual Urbanists (iAVU). The programme draws on the advanced theoretical, research and practical image-making specialisms of key practitioners in the field, and will be taught by tutors from Goldsmiths’ Sociology Department and the international MA in Photography and Urban Cultures. Summer School tutors include: Paul Halliday (MA in Photography and Urban Cultures Course Leader, Goldsmiths, UOL), Les Back (Goldsmiths, UOL), Caroline Knowles (Goldsmiths, UOL), Mandy Lee Jandrell (Falmouth University), Peter Coles (Goldsmiths, UOL), Laura Cuch (Goldsmiths, UOL and UCL), Diego Ferrari (Kingston University), David Kendall (Goldsmiths, UOL) and Gill Golding (Goldsmiths, UOL).
The programme will explore how the practice of urban image-making informs the development of a reflexive and critical research perspective and will include assignments and guided fieldtrips in London focusing on (1) Urban Landscapes and Architectures, (2) Urban Materialities and Objects, (3) Street-based Photography, Performance and Portraiture.
