So. Photography degrees. Thanks very much for all the advice both on and off-line – I’m touched so many people took the time to help, and it certainly turned me around from my initial negative reaction. I just accepted the offer.
Four weeks of thinking and the major worries are still there: the travelling will be expensive and likely take over my week, the theoretical parts of the course look worryingly postmodernist, I’ll probably be paying off student fees for years and I’m still concerned I’ll feel small and pathetic compared to better photographers. But screw it all: interesting things only happen when you say yes. Therefore: yes.
