Photographic Studies MA , 2009

"I enjoyed the well-structured modules of both theory and practice. And you can always find the connections with the tutors no matter what area you are interested in."

Ting-Ting Cheng was born in 1985, Taiwan. She moved to London in 2008 and received her first MA in Photographic Studies from University of Westminster the year after. After participating in a number of exhibitions internationally, she continued her research at MFA Fine Art at Goldsmiths, University of London in 2012.
