Portfolio Reviews with Malcolm Dickson – opportunity to get feedback on your work
We are interested in Viewing: Bodies of work in their early stages OR substantially developed from photographers based in Fife or outside the Central Belt, which blend experimental approaches, conceptual or issue based themes; social landscape work and new documentary; work that tells a compelling story; lyrical and narrative; photography based work that intersects with other media. Advice will be given on the basis of the work seen. Not interested in fashion, commercial or classical modes of documentary. Students are encouraged to seek advice from experienced tutors and from existing resources available online.
