New photography school:
British schools need to start thinking about teaching photography. I mean teaching it seriously, for the long-term, and embedding it right across the curriculum. Schools have had new computers & training pumped into them for over a decade now. Their children are set to get half-decent 2pmx digital camera s in next Spring’s new mobile phone. Schools no longer need a darkroom with nasty chemicals, expensive inkjet printers (show images on the web), or the Very Expensive Camera That Might Be Dropped. There are no excuses left. The UK has an opportunity to nurture a generation of photography-aware children who know there’s more to it than “stand still!!” and “now display your cheesiest half-grin!”.
