The publication is a new concept in showing photographic work challenging the traditional format of a degree show, as well as featuring student work it also profiles staff research projects and features Uclan Alumni. The launch events were a big success thankyou to everyone who attended and to all of you who bought copies of North, we hope you enjoyed the magazine.
Finally a big thanks to all our Launch partners Village Bookstore and the Photographers Gallery for help and support.

The Grand Depart of the Tour de France came to the UK from the 5th to the 7th of July.
Two staff from Photography, Jon Purcell and David Dennison, documented different aspects of the Tour in a number of Yorkshire locations. Photography student Laura Shepherd followed the Tour in France, accompanied by two MA Publishing students who will be producing a book of the event within the next few weeks.
Jonathan Purcell documented the area at the top of Cragg Vale – England’s longest continuous gradient. As the climb reached its peak many cycling fans waited at Blackstone Edge Reservoir before the descent into Ripponden.
David Dennison concentrated on the route in Wensleydale and Swaledale, particularly the way in which local businesses and communities responded to the big event.
As part of the Fashion & Photography module, students were asked to interpret the concept of ‘Liminal’ as a 12 page fashion spread.
After a short & intensive workshop on the process of making an animated gif. Students were then given all 120 images from their Liminal submission and asked, in groups of 2, to create an animated gif that would explore the concept of Liminal further by merging images together/creating animations to make a truly Liminal image.
They then had to submit these within 1 hour to the Diesel Reboot
site for Diesel’s #weareconnected brief, several of which have been published.
