Mr Anthony Lam


I am Course Leader for BA Photography and have over 15 years' experience in HE, teaching Photography at undergraduate level.

My role as Course Leader is to advance the unique identity of the course and fully support the students' learning, engagement and achievement, through leadership, collaboration and constant 'live' and active dialogue. My task also includes increasing positive reception and perception of the course, whilst further developing, refining, defining and enriching the learning and teaching strategy for the delivery of the course ambitions and its future, and increasing the all-important central focus on the student experience.

I am a photographer who is engaged with interrogating, exploring and expanding my relationship to photography and society. My diverse practice is located within conceptual, representational and social concerns, addressing issues of identity, culture and place from a personal and social political viewpoint. I have exhibited works both nationally and internationally; in galleries, publications, public installations and interventions and my photographs are in the Tate, British Council and Autograph-ABP's collections and archives. I have also worked in Hong Kong as a photographer and picture editor as well as in the UK. I have collaborated with many different organisations (including The Photographers' Gallery, Barbican Centre, Brighton Photo Biennial, Chisenhale Gallery, Chinese Arts Centre, Hayward Gallery, Mass Observation Archive, Museum of Childhood, Museum of London, National Portrait Gallery, The National Trust, PhotoVoice and the V & A) in my wider engagement with the public and ideas centred around and about contemporary society.
