eCPR Logo

Established in 2000 as the Centre for Photographic Research and designated as European Centre for Photographic Research in 2008, eCPR provides a focus in Wales for high quality research in photography that builds on both its institutional heritage and internationally renowned scholarship. It aims to develop work that addresses both the cultural histories of photography and the contemporary issues and debates informing photographic and film-based art and documentary practices. eCPR builds on an initial pedagogical dynamic between art and documentary that grew out of the teaching of Keith Arnatt and David Hurn in the 1970s. This has evolved in order to have greater relevance to the shifting relationships and inter-dependencies between art and documentary.
