BA Hons Photography
Week 13: 2014

Txema Salvans, from the series ‘Waiting Game’. Dear 1st Year, we do hope you are keeping well and wish you a very Happy New Year. This post is a copy of the email that went out earlier today and outlines the plan of the week.


1. Submission Deadline: Tuesday 7th January (10am-11am)

RPHC4003 Contextual Studies Unit.: Component 1 (Essay)

I’m sure many of you are all focussed on tomorrow’s deadline for the first ‘essay’ component of your Contextual Studies Unit. Francis Summers has emailed details submitting work via Turnitin. This can be found via myUCA, under RPHC4003 Contextual Studies Unit > Unit Contents > Assessment > Year 1 Essay: RPHC4003.

Do listen to the guide ‘Help with Turnitin’

Once this procedure is undertaken, you must also hand in your essay as a hard copy to the Campus Registry Office located on the ground floor, via the Zandra Rhodes Gallery. (Please note, Jackie is on leave, so please exp-lain you are a 1st Year Photography student, handing in your component.



2. Project Briefing: Tuesday 7th January (11.30am)

RPHC4002 Commission Unit.: Component 2 Briefing

Following your hand-in there is time for a coffee/tea and then Steffi Klenz will be giving her briefing of Component 2 of the Commission Unit, this will take place in Studio 2 at 11.30am. To support the briefing and contextual talk in the afternoon students from the 2nd and 3rd Year have kindly agreed to represent their projects and talk about their process of developing their projects concept, using contextual research and their shooting methodology. This is an opportunity to ask questions about the challenges to undertake such a project, so you are encourage to prepare questions.



3. RPHC400 Object & Body Unit Deadline

To ensure that you all have as much preparatory time as possible, we have slightly adjusted the deadline of the Unit. This is to facilitate that all 1st Years go to the Private Views of the 2nd Year shows for Medway Photo. The presentation dates are as follows, Tuesday 21st January and Thursday 23rd. The schedule is outlined below, but doesn’t yet include Friday 24th January’s Peer Review timetable. I will send this later to you all. Where possible, I have tried to stick to the same format, but please note carefully your timetabled slot.

To support the submission requirements for the forthcoming deadline for this unit. Please refer to the timetable for access to the darkrooms and digital lab. Remember to turn up for your allocated slot. Students who are 30mins late and have not informed the technical team, will jeopardise their enlarger entitlement, so please communicate with us in good time if you have been delayed. If by 10.30am a student schedule to use the enlarger has not shown, their place will be assigned to another student on a 1st come. 1st served basis.


Please refresh yourself with the submission requirements of the brief, pages 3 & 4

Object Print: Analogue & Digital (Colour)

You are encouraged to print your analogue prints first for the Object. This print should be used as a ‘Proof’ Print for your digital print submission, which will require you to make a high resolution scan of your 5×4 negative. John Sullivan and Colin Jackson will be on hand to support in the respective labs.
