Andrew Conroy

I’m a photographic artist and writer with an interest in the connections – and disconnections – between space, place, identity and capital. I tutor on several OCA units, authored Reapproaching Photography and produced 53° 33′ 9.468″ N 1° 28′ 47.014″ W interface, an exploration of Barnsley’s fringes and former industrial spaces, for the Investigating Place short course. I’m also an assessor and unit leader.
