The European Master of Fine Art Photography is based on 3 fundamental premises:

– Its international nature, with a special focus on the European context.

– The excellence of its faculty.

– Its orientation towards artistic projects.

The purpose of the program is based on the premise that there is a conceptual European creative identity, which is and must primarily be a reference point in academics, culture and the art market. Its purpose, however, is not closed, but rather encompasses everything European; it is an invitation to diversity and exchange. In this sense, the participation of students from other continents is especially interesting and enriching.

This program is targeted at emerging photographers, as well as professionals in the photography industry who want to break into the art world. Classes will be held in Spanish and English. Thus, an upper intermediate level of both languages is required. Courses are taught by artists and international experts in their field, who speak from their own point of view, not from the text book. Our project tutors are the young and talented photographers Ricardo Cases, Joan Villaplana and Nicolás Combarro.
