Four second-year students who undertook an optional photography module during their course, had their photographs shown in New York at Pioneer Works, Brooklyn. The open call was set up by Brooklyn based conceptual artist, Dawn Kim, an artist who examines (mis)recorded histories to better understand the complexities of the everyday. All the students who submitted their work were lucky enough to be shown in Brooklyn and via the online archive website.

We caught up with Fashion Promotion and Communication student, Aimy Holcombe, a student at the Nottingham School of Art and Design, about how they found the experience.

'Photography lecturer, George Miles, mentioned the 25 Things to Photograph public project and I just thought to myself, why not? As a fashion student, I felt it allowed me to explore an alternative creative output. My submitted images referenced the cohesive theme of absence of presence.'

We want to extend a huge congratulations to Aimy Holcombe, Elena Hamilton, Amelia Prescott, and Julie Soeng for their excellent submissions.

The second-year optional modules allow students from various courses in the Nottingham School of Art & Design, to study a module from another course within the school. This helps encourage their skill development, whilst also connecting students from across different courses within the school.

Take a look at the 25 Photographs website to explore the online exhibition.
