The IED Madrid Photography Department prides itself on innovation and a quality faculty, as well as focusing on projects as the fundamental core of learning and understanding the creative experience. We believe that learning photography cannot be understood without the sincere commitment of the best professors/artists, who transmit their personal experience and share their creative encounters with other emerging and established artists. Similarly, we are convinced that this generous attitude can only be productive if students are able to translate this learning into the development and production of a personal project. IED Madrid develops its academic offerings and photography courses based on this demanding, ambitious concept, thinking not of amateurs, but rather students’ inspiration to become photographers, professionals and artists.
The IED’s Department of Photography has recently signed an exchange program with Seoul’s prestigious Chung-Ang University and collaborates with institutions such as PhotoIreland (Dublin), Photographic Social Vision (Barcelona) and European Photography Magazine (Berlin). The Department is directed by Moritz Neumüller and coordinated by Marta Orozco. Project tutors are Nicolás Combarro, Ricardo Cases and Joan Villaplana. Our students normally come from all over the world and thus most of our courses are run in English and Spanish, with simultaneous translation in the classroom, by Eduardo Cervera.
Please have a look at the list of our docents. We regularly organize exhibitions (such as Private Faces Public, 2013) and talks in collaboration with other local institutions, such as Ivorypress, the Estampa Fair, PhotoEspaña, the Reina Sofia Museum, and selected international partner institutions. Students’ works are exhibited and published by the school and – more importantly – in international magazines (such as FOAM, European Photography), galleries, fairs and festivals. Please have a look at our Success Stories for some examples. - See more at: http://europeanmasterphotography.ie...
