The #PHONAR (Photography and Narrative) App provides access and participation to a free and open photography class, pioneered by the photography team at Coventry University in the UK.
This App will allow you to interact and access the class as we explore these themes and consider them in relation to what we do as photographers.
It is based on a third year undergraduate class run by Jonathan Shaw, Jonathan Worth and Matt Johnston. The core tenet of the photography degree course is the “development of a sustainable practice”, key to which is the investigation of contemporary photographic practices and their implications for the medium as a whole.
The phrase “Trans-media” is often used to describe contemporary multi-media/multi-platform practices as well as non-linear, and vicariously dynamic narrative approaches to story telling.
The class runs for 10 weeks of the year and seeks to enable us and you to collaborate with other practitioners and subjects, as well as forcing us to question our notions of ownership and authorship along the way. Outside of this block of time it acts as a resource for inspiration!
