Just wrapped up the Spring Reportage 2015 short course at Central Saint Martins. Ten weekly ‘micro’ projects culminating in one final major assessment project on June 25th. Student projects included portraits of an Afghan in a dystopian London, the gentrification of Soho post-Paul Raymond, the spiritual borderland between church and finance, a disturbing multimedia discourse on the subject of the rising trend of Facebook Lolitas, and a reflexive study on the Tube and its users through property, destination and reason.

I invited photojournalists Giorgia Tobiolo, Eugenio Grosso and photographer Nick Tucker to guest crit and they added an additional layer of professional opinion and suggestion. Congrats to the students on polishing off the ten weeks with a high quality response and best of luck to all. Reportage Photography will resume again in the autumn session as I am now involved with Summer short courses.
