Our BA (Hons) Photography students have recently returned from a five-day study trip to New York. The optional trip was open to students from across all three years of the course, and an opportunity for them to conduct research for their studies and experience the big apple!

The students travelled by coach from Nottingham to London Heathrow, flying to New Jersey's Newark airport. They stayed in Manhattan's Midtown, close to Times Square, the Empire State Building and Rockefeller Centre.

I would definitely recommend it to other students, such a great experience to see a different city and a different culture.

A suggested itinerary was provided, allowing the students to visit the galleries and landmarks which were of most interest to them, with just one scheduled group visit to the Museum of Modern Art (MOMA).

Student Emma Morgan told us: "The highlight of my trip was seeing the sunset at the top of the Rockefeller over the whole city. It was beautiful to see the city change from light to dark and light up.

"I would definitely recommend it to other students, such a great experience to see a different city and a different culture."

Other recommended places to visit included the Whitney Museum of American Art, the Aperture Foundation, Solomon R.Guggenheim Museum, the International Center of Photography (ICP), MoMA PS1, the Rubin Museum of Art, and The Metropolitan Museum.
