DOCTORAL DISSERTATIONS

 

Since 1997 Aalto has educated 20 Doctors of Arts in Photography. Nine of the doctoral dissertations are artistic research (Kristoffer Albrecht, Petri Anttonen, Taneli Eskola, Marjaana Kella, Pekka Luukkola, Juha Suonpää, Harri Pälviranta, Ismo Luukkonen, Maija Tammi), one is a multimedia production (Merja Salo) and two use a theoretical approach (Mika Elo and Harri Laakso). Eight use diverse methodological approaches such as media ethnography (Hanna Weselius), historical image analysis (Iina Kohonen), re-photography (Tapio Heikkilä), practice based research (Marc Goodwin, Timo Korhonen, Päivi Setälä). Digital and mobile phone photography are discussed in two dissertations (Pekka Makkonen, Mikko Villi).
