Relying on the use of photographic images, a key element in today's visual communication, the Master Photography programme at ECAL gives students who have attained a related Bachelor's degree an opportunity to develop projects in the long term.

The course pushes the boundaries of applied research in contemporary photography, with an emphasis on picture dematerialisation through digital manipulation, 3D computer-generated imagery and virtual and augmented reality.

Students gain practical training by exploring new forms of books, shaping images on various media, as well as interactive exhibition design including the moving image.

Taking advantage of ECAL's numerous collaborations with economic, industrial and cultural stakeholders, this training gives students the opportunity to regularly rub shoulders with influential figures in fine art photography and commissioned work.

Structured around practical lessons and workshop weeks, the programme creates privileged encounters.

As for theory, visual analyses and text productions guide students towards the clarification and disclosure of project concepts.

Workshops, labs, studios and the availability of a state-of-the-art print shop ensure that the students' initial ideas are given concrete form.

In order to advise potential candidates, online portfolio reviews will take place on 9 March. Register for this event here.

Applications to this course have now closed.
