The master aims to train students to become professional photographers and to develop authorial autonomy, in-depth analysis of the grammar of photography, the coordination of individual and collective photographic projects from the development of the initial idea to the finalization of publications and photographic books, through the collaboration with figures such as client, graphic designer, photolitist and typographer. The master offers to participants the necessary instruments for the photographer profession, from technical notions to the development of an independent visual research through workshops and field exercises. The program evolves through several didactic modules dedicated to the photography technique and its historical development, also in relation to contemporary artistic productions. These modules are followed by workshops held by authors and professionals working in the art, editorial, curatorial and academic photographic fields. Furthermore, the workshops explore different approaches to the photographic language, in order to realize a collaborative and shared research between students and professors. During the master, the students develop a series of projects under the supervision of the different authors, they attend internships at institutions, photographic studios and independent realities, developing a professional approach to contemporary photography and coming into contact with a network of international professionals, curators and editors active in Italy and abroad. In the final stage of the master, the students produce an individual project starting from the researches developed during the year of study. The final project is presented during the master final exhibition and is conceived in order to be published.
