Freya is a Lecturer on the BA (Hons) Photography course and currently runs the first year module ‘Context of Practice’, which provides a contextual and historical background for photographic practice and encourages students to consider the relationships between theory and practice in relation to their own work as well as the work of others.
Freya has worked in education since 2011 and holds a BA (Hons) Photography degree and a PGCE. She is a practicing artist and has exhibited work nationally and as part of collaborative art collective Precious. She is currently studying for a Masters in Critical and Cultural Theory, which aims to identify and tease out the critical charge embedded in the notion of culture itself through the study of theories of the aesthetic, the media and technology. Broadly speaking Freya’s research centres on the purpose and function of photography and in particular her current area of research is photography, magic and mimesis.
Freya currently also works across levels 4 to 6 on the BA (Hons) Visual Communication course at Leeds Arts University as an Associate Lecturer.
