"Turn on, tune in, drop in."



"Jonathan Worth is a freelance photographer whose client list includes among others, the New York Times, Vogue and GQ. For the past two years he has taught a class on the BA photography degree course at Coventry University called Phonar that encourages photography students to use digital media to find and build audiences to allow them to make a living.

The ethos of the course, which can be accessed online by non-attending students and observers, has drawn widespread attention and even been discussed in the European Parliament. Here he talks to Eleanor O’Kane about his revolutionary approach to training the next generation of photographers."
