About me

Stephen Monger is a photographer and academic. He has worked in higher education for over 20 years, and holds a 0.6 position in the School of Art and Design at UWE. His role as Programme Leader for MA Graphic Arts brings him into contact with a broad and diverse range of highly motivated postgraduate students from Europe and beyond. He is also Senior Lecturer in Graphic Design. His research interests form around photography’s position and how it can hybridise with other mediums. Recent external events he has curated are: ‘The Graphic Arts of Photography’ (2018), ‘Drawing on the Graphic Arts’ (2019), at Centrespace Gallery, and ‘Shifting Screens: Conversations on Motion Graphics’ (2020) held at the Arnolfini, in Bristol.
He has received a number of awards and commissions, including a commission to explore 3D printing from The Pheonix Gallery, Exeter (2012), a residency in Harghita County, Transylvania (2005), being short-listed for the Tate St. Ives residency (2004) and being selected for EAST International, Norwich by the American artist Lawrence Weiner (2002).
Previous solo projects include: 'Urban Documents', a body of photographs of cardboard models exploring architectural additions and adaptions, which was shown at The Architecture Centre, Bristol (2006), The Lighthouse Glasgow (2006), and The Solent Centre for Architecture & Design, Winchester (2007); and 'Switches and Other Works', a collection of photographs of model galleries, at Nottingham Castle (2004), Folly Gallery Lancaster (2004), the Biennial VIII, Lisbon, Portugal (2004), and ImagoLucis Fotogaleria, Porto, Portugal (2003). He has also exhibited in numerous group shows.
Since 2011 he has worked as a consultant for The Open University Validation Services, and in 2012 joined the Visual Communications staff at The Open College of the Arts. In this role, he is involved in writing open learning degree courses and teaching through blended learning approaches. He is a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy and a postgraduate and undergraduate external examiner.
He first started teaching at UWE in 2003.
