Dissecting images: medicine and the photographic body – 24 March to 28 April 2021

How are our experiences of illness shaped by visual representations? How is health culturally and ethically inscribed in images? Join Liz Orton and Sukey Parnell Johnson in exploring photographic treatments of the body, a six-week online course about health, illness and its representations.

This is an inter-disciplinary course, connecting visual practice to theory, using photography as a medium of both production and creative inquiry. It will explore how medical and photographic technologies – looking at, through and into us – categorise and codify bodies, and contribute to health inequalities.

This course is suitable for anyone with an interest in health and images. A prior interest in the visual arts is helpful but not essential.
