Our Year Two BA (Hons) Photography students have recently curated six independent public exhibitions across the city.

The venues included Hopkinsons Gallery, P Spowage Gallery, Surface Gallery, The Photo Parlour, Bohunk Institute and the Broadmarsh Centre. Each group of students held their own private view to celebrate their mid-year work.

The work on display this year reflected many aspects of photographic practice, contextualised through short essays, artist statements and exhibition publications. The students managed their own exhibitions from making the work, fundraising, marketing, sponsorship and working with the press.

Course Leader, Max Kandhola told us: "The range of skills that the students have undertaken are vast. These have ranged from negotiating the space with landlords, managing budgets, painting the interior, making sure health and safety checks are in place and reflecting on the content of the exhibitions, as the work was open to public. The students made films, incorporated moving image, sound and narrative presented through variations of book making."

Student, James Marvin said: "I exhibited at Surface Gallery and the reaction I got from my work was great; it was the first time I had shown my work in a public space. Opportunities like this are great for professional practice, as you learn that there is a lot of work that goes into putting on a great photography show. It also demonstrated more potential career paths within the photography industry."

Student, Patricia Tobin added: "The inspiration behind my work which I exhibited at The Photo Parlour was consumerism. Displaying our work to the public was really refreshing as it gave us the opportunity to walk around and hear feedback, both good and bad."
