Meet some of the BA (Hons) Photojournalism students soon to be exhibiting their work in the Lower Street and Dark Space Galleries in the first of LCC’s Summer Shows 2014, open Monday 2 – Saturday 7 June.
Dedicated to the practice of photographic storytelling, the students include Thomas Nicholson, whose project ‘Cornish Fish’ follows the journey of hake and ling from the Celtic Sea to the West End of London.
In ‘Behind the Curtains’, Helena Mueller explores the surrealism of a circus and provides a unique insight into the life of circus artists, both behind the scenes and during the show.
Betoul Mahdey examines the impact of decades of war on Iraqi art and culture, following a number of Iraqi artists who have been forced to depart their homes and seek refuge in London.
Alastair Johnstone captures the human impact of severe and extended flooding in the Somerset Levels, south-west England, in early 2014.
And in ‘”This is a Gift”: Young Single Motherhood’, Helen Hasse tells the story of three young single mothers in the UK, aiming to spark a conversation about the benefit system, societal prejudice and individual rights.
Come and see the work of these and many other talented young photographers for yourself from Monday!
