A significant part of the photography Masters course is dedicated to the follow-up of the students’ personal practices through individual interviews or collective critical discussions. Analytical work, as well as a constant practice of exchange, lead to understanding the challenges of a committed work, its place in the field of photography and in the art world. The contextualisation and socialization of the work are also priorities that condition the understanding of the context of a project by regularly dwelling on issues of spatial exhibition and of publications in order to question the ways to connect or not with an environment, a territory or the digital space. In this course, we regularly focus on the understanding of major photographic works through in-depth analyses. Finally, throughout the year, a series of theoretical modules are suggested, articulated around themes across the various contemporary photographic practices that call upon sociology, economy, history, literature, etc. in order to broaden the referential fields.
