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!

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.
