Mr Oliver Udy

Lecturer in Photography

School of Art and Media (Faculty of Arts & Humanities)

Qualifications

BA(Hons) Photography - University of Plymouth
MA Photography - University College Falmouth
PGCE - University of Wales Newport

I am a photographer, publisher and curator working with a wide range of practices.


Research interests

My Research interests vary with each different aspect of my work. As a photographer I am interested in the Vernacular and the Landscape. I have explored different spaces that have interesting socio-political backgrounds.

I also have an ongoing collaboration with another Artist, which is focussed on Photography and the Archive, as well as contemporary rural life.

Finally I am interested in micro publishing, and the rise of the independent photobook. As a publisher I am interested in new incarnations of documentary practice, as well as exploring the authorial role of the editor in the presentation of others' work. .
