Module Leader

Colin Pantall is a writer, lecturer and photographer based in Bath, Europe. He has written for a range of publications including Blind Magazine, World Press Photo, Magnum Photos, Aperture, Foam, The British Journal of Photography, PH Museum of Humanity, and Source Magazine.

His photography focusses on domestic environments and family, and include his projects Sofa Portraits, All Quiet on the Home Front, and My German Family Album, projects where the conflicting narratives of family, environmental and political histories collide.

Four of Colin's career highlights

  • Publishing All Quiet on the Home Front, the final book of a trilogy that looks at my relationship between myself, my daughter, and my home environment.
  • Researching, writing, and editing Magnum China with my co-editor in China.
  • Merging global theory, history, research, and contemporary practice in my teaching, and seeing students bring these ideas into their own work and move into new areas of dynamic creativity.
  • Continuing to question how images are made and disseminated through my writing, my photography and my teaching. The more things change, the more things stay the same… But still they change.

A little advice?

Keep on looking, keep on questioning, learn resilience, research around photography, art, film, literature, politics, or whatever you are interested in. Challenge yourself and make your own stories, and the Falmouth MA is a great place to do that.
