Alumni Emily MacInnes (BA (Hons) Photography 2012) and Benjamin Swanson (BA (Hons) Photography 2014) have been selected for inclusion in the highly prestigious photography award and publication reGeneration3.

Fifty leading photographic courses from around the world are chosen to present four or five portfolios of student work, by students who have graduated since 2012. Max Kandhola, Principal Lecturer/Course Leader in BA (Hons) Photography at NTU said: "As a team we selected four portfolios of photographic work which best represented the NTU course curriculum, our ethos and photographic vision."

Now in its third edition, and held every three to four years, reGeneration3 is an independent peer reviewed selection panel from Musée de l'Elysée in Lausanne, Switzerland - a museum dedicated entirely to photography which has exhibited the biggest names in the photography industry over the last 30 years.

Emily MacInnes, whose portfolio was one of the four put forward by NTU and has been selected, said: "Firstly, to be selected by NTU to be entered as an applicant and then to be chosen as one of 50 international artists to exhibit their work came as a shock, but an absolute honour! I could not be more excited to be involved in this exhibition which coincides with the 30th anniversary of Musée de L'Elysée.

"The events surrounding the exhibition, including the Nuit des Images 2015, and workshops with professionals from the art and publishing world, makes being part of reGeneration3 an incredibly exciting prospect."

Fellow NTU photography graduate, Benjamin Swanson, who has also been selected, said: "I am very excited, and grateful for the opportunity to take part in such an event. I am looking forward to what should be an exciting and fruitful experience for both contributors and visitors to what should be a very enjoyable exhibition."

Emily and Benjamin's work will be published with the other chosen photographers by Thames and Hudson, and the selected work will be exhibited internationally for three years. The exhibition is scheduled from 29 May – 23 August 2015 at the Musée de l’Elysée in Lausanne, accompanied by a catalogue and a workshop.
