Opening Post

This blog is Keith Greenough’s learning blog for the Open College of the Arts course – Understanding Visual Culture. I have created a separate blog from my main photographic blog My idea is to keep the coursework for this new course clearly identified but also to be able to cross reference to the main blog…..I plan to enrol tomorrow….

My hope is that this course will provide me with a stronger critical understanding which will inform my future photographic work. I do not need the course to collect more points for my degree in photography…this ¬†one is just for interest. I plan to progress this course in parallel to my future level 3 photography work. At this stage I have the photography studies on hold whilst I validate my thinking and also spend some time upgrading my technical skills with large format cameras. I hope that the UVC course will help me to validate my ideas for the level 3 Advanced work.
