On the 28th September I formally finished my Master’s Degree with a Distinction. The last few months in lockdown proved challenging at the best of times. Having to alter the course of one unit due to the inability to go outside or visit University, and re-structuring others, especially my dissertation, to use readily available (online) resources. All in all it was tremendously rewarding, and I learnt a great deal on many aspects of art, culture, heritage etc, and was able to focus my studies around photography.
One of the side effects of lockdown was the cancellation of our MA end of year show. However, the three MA course of Visual Communication, Art Direction for Fashion and Beauty, and my own course, Critical Creative Practice moved online to a virtual MA show.

There are a few other things in the very early planning stage, but I’ll keep those under wraps until they’re more developed.
I will in the next few weeks put my dissertation up here, probably in parts as it’s a long read in one go!
