She/He/Me – a first year project

Our first years have just completed a portraiture project using B&W film.

Most of the first years had never shot film before they arrived at UCLan, so getting to this standard in just 12 weeks is remarkable. Big thanks are due to our darkroom guru Jo Garrett and our workshop tutor David Gregory. Great work everyone!

Student Travel Bursary Award: La Historia de México

A Photographic Journal of Diversity and Sovereignty by David Foster.

BA Photography student David Foster has documented his travels through Mexico. David was awarded a UCLan travel bursary for the trip, which traces the struggle for independence from colonial rule and visits sites of significance during the early days of Mexican independence.

David captures the rich tapestry of everyday life in Mexico, making connections to the legacy of independence. His images attempt to acknowledge the changes and challenges facing life in a country straddling the boundary between its rich northern neighbours and its cultural ties to the rest of the continent to the south.

Self Published Photo Books Display

As part of the PRIME showcase at Photo UCLan, 1st yr under graduate students displayed their self published photo books that were the outcome of a Semester 2 module.  This annual display of work featured a broad range of styles in which the format of a publication functions in order to enhance the communicative value of the photographic project.
