Reportage Photography tutor Karl Grupe, led his recent Autumn Term course students into a wonderful end of course Exhibition named Documents, allowing students to present and discuss their work with an audience.  Invited guests were presented with a series of personal photographic essays exploring the relationship between teen self-esteem and dress code, the hidden costs of eco-travel, a London portrait as seen through an immigrant’s eyes, a lyrical look at litter and common spaces, environmental portraits of a ‘border’ block on the edge of The City, a typological diary on recycling, the overlooked and unseen of Camden and a portrait of a Thai boxing gym and it’s athletes.  Hailed as a “huge success”, by course leader Karl Grupe, the Q&A style exhibition invited crits and comments from invited guests, thus allowing the students to receive valuable critical analysis.  Karl Grupe talks at length in his blog about the benefits of this type of exhibition, “more a student engages in the practice of presentation the more they evolve in terms of developing the finer points behind the understanding of their own work and process.”  See Karl’s full review of the exhibition over on his blog. Our next Reportage Photography course will start in April, with further dates in summer.  Full information over on our Short Course website.
