Meet the teachers in our special issue devoted to photography learning. Featuring Stephen Shore on his own unorthodox education and how teaching has changed his own practice. We visit two influential (and sharply contrasting) teaching institutions – the Royal College of Art in London and Pathshala South Asian Media Institute in Dhaka. Plus we discuss the benefits of workshops with JH Engström, Yumi Goto and others. And we meet the laureates of the BMW Residency at Musée Nicéphore Niépce to discuss self-directed learning. In our Projects section we introduce the best of Class of 2016, our first pick of this year’s British graduates. In Intelligence, curator Simon Baker on photography’s place within the revamped Tate Modern, plus we meet Nick Haymes of Little Big Man in LA and Max Barnett of Pylot magazine. And in Technology, we review the Nikon D5.
