About this program

Master's Degree in Signature Documentary Photography (in Spanish only)

The Master in Author Documentary Photography is a contemporary didactic proposal, in tune with photography, art, information and visual communication.

The program has a critical focus and deals experientially, experimentally and constructively with the essential questions that characterize the concept of the "documentary" in its relation to art. Its main objective is to explore and take advantage of the possibilities that arise from the conjugation of the author's subjectivity with the demands of documentary practice.

The proposal reflects the current nature of the image and is framed in a new ecology of the media, which requires evolutionary modes of production, distribution and consumption of information in all its forms. This need requires new actors, with their own personality and criteria in the world of documentary photography.
