Welcome to photojournalism at London Met

Our students are experts in capturing moments, whether they're faced with a scene of joy, justice, shock or defiance. Current affairs, both locally and globally, are perfect examples of how any such moments can leave us speechless.

Luckily, we're firm believers in the old adage that a picture paints a thousand words, and are therefore proud to present a series of showstopping photos by our students which are a testament to this. 

From scenes of celebration to history in the making, freeze-frames of victory to moments of intimacy, here you're invited to see the world through the lenses of our photojournalism students.

In their own words...

Three of our Photojournalism BA (Hons) students across the years talk about what photography means to them:

"Before the last few decades, photojournalism was a concrete weapon against the bad guys. Studying photojournalism (at London Met) to me, means this. Being an everyday hero wannabe. Chasing the bad guys and helping people."
Gianluca Barbazzi, first-year Photojournalism BA student
