We would like to invite you to the Photo UCLAN exhibition launch event on Wednesday 25th May from 4pm to 7pm at PR1 Gallery, Victoria Building.


The exhibition is a show case of a selection of work from students across all three years of the undergraduate BA photography program.

Third year students will be exhibiting new works in the PR1 Gallery, spanning a range of photographic practice, including, contemporary fashion, documentary, collage and the photobook.

A selection of second year work from the Photography and the City module, will be on display in the photography gallery area found above PR1

Year one students will also be displaying photographic publications, which have been produced over the course this semester, exploring a diverse range of narrative driven photo work.


We hope to see you there.


Self Published – Hannah Metcalfe

The main theme of one of the second semester modules in Year 1 of the undergraduate Photography course is to learn about the process and purpose of photobook publishing, resulting in each student self-publishing their own work.  This week a series of blog posts will showcase some of the fantastic work that has been produced this year, starting with this project originally printed in newspaper format by Hannah Metcalfe.

Copeland Book Market

The Copeland Book Market was founded by Guy Robertson and Tom Saunderson in 2011 and takes its name from the yard in which their gallery, Son Gallery, was located in Peckham.  In 2012 they were joined by an advisory panel of artists, photographers and publishers including Kat Black, Lewis Chaplin from fourteen-nineteen, Oliver Griffin from Umbrella Group, and UCLan Photography Lecturer Adam Murray.

The 2013 edition of the Market took place recently and featured over 40 publishers including Cafe Royal Books, GOST Books, MELK, Village Bookstore and WassinkLundgren.  An extensive events programme accompanied the market featuring Jeremy Deller’s English Magic and a discussion titled ’50 years after Twentysix Gasoline Stations’.

Victoria Baths Zine Fair

On Sunday 5th May a group of 1st year students (Hannah Metcalfe, Alexandra Hartley, Alexander Cutler, Chris Teagles, Megan Bayliss, Elizabeth Old, Sara Leonard) took part in the Victoria Baths Zine Fair.  Housed in the wonderful Edwardian swimming pool and Turkish Baths complex, the fair was a great opportunity to present and sell their recently self-published photographic books, zines and newspapers.
