Photography lecturer and student featured in leading photography magazine
The Northern School of Art‘s photography degree course leader, Jamie MacDonald, and second year photography degree student James Tappenden are featured as part of an article in leading consumer publication Amateur Photographer.
The piece focuses on reaction to the republication of internationally renowned photographer and artist Paul Graham’s seminal 1983 book, A1 – The Great North Road, documenting a road trip along the UK’s longest numbered road.
Jamie MacDonald, pictured below, an independent photographer and filmmaker in his own right, and James both reflect on the influence of Paul Graham’s ground-breaking work on their own practice.
“Paul Graham’s work was a major influence on me, particularly when I studied as he visited my university art school,” commented Jamie MacDonald.
“I was delighted to be involved with the article and to give a contemporary perspective as a higher education educator and someone who teaches photography at degree level at The Northern School of Art.”
Jamie also directed the article’s author, photo-journalist Peter Dench, to speak to current second year undergraduate on the School’s (BA Hons) Photographic Practice (with Moving Image) degree, James Tappenden (@james.tappy on Instagram), pictured at the top, who was also then interviewed and quoted in the article.
