Joanna Fursman is an artist, researcher and educator and began using photography in her practice to critically explore the classroom and school where she taught art. This has evolved through a practice-based PhD to include workshops where young people reflect and respond to their school environment with digital cameras.
Joanna’s research combines the distinct fields of the photographic image, art practice and pedagogy to examine contemporary appearances of school. Making experiences of young people in school more visible she intends to explore how returning to education in a landscape newly shaped by the pandemic looks and feels.
