#picbod (Picturing the body) is an open and connected BA (Hons) Photography second year undergraduate class run by Matt Johnston at Coventry University.

The ten weeks are structured so as to address complex aesthetic, creative and technical issues along with the visual messages, associated with the photographic encounter with the body. We do this through simple practical and thematic tasks, the cumulative resolution of which, become their final lens based submissions.

For our attending degree students the class plays a crucial role in both their thematic and practical development. It’s purpose then is to inspire, challenge and maybe even provoke them into producing a number of considered and cogent photographic responses.
