Words by Rory Sheridan, a BA(Hons) Photography student.
Autograph ABP in Shoreditch and London College of Communication collaborated to showcase work by some of the most talented, emerging photographic artists who will no doubt go on to do great things.
As part of Album, 20 young people aged between 17-19 took part in an extracurricular, creative opportunity taking the form of 12 evening sessions and a week long Spring School. Album is inspired by the notion of the family photo album and its intimate and revealing nature. The project aims to position young people as artists and social recorders of their own communities, creating narratives through the photographic medium.
Rory Sheridan is studying BA (Hons) Photography. He works as Outreach Ambassador across a number of projects run by the Outreach Team at LCC, working alongside tutors to help young people who take part in projects (like Album) to develop their own creative practice. Rory discusses the work of the talented young individuals he worked with.
