As part of Trips Week some students and staff visited Blackpool to view the Haunted House exhibition at the Grundy Art Gallery and produce images In Blackpool around the title ‘pleasure’. Students were given the afternoon to explore the area between South beach and North Pier and produce 3 final images. After a stop off for chips and tea students also did a 20 minute challenge to produce one image containing Tower, Tea and Tourists.
UCLan BA Photography students visited Manchester City Art Gallery during their Induction Week. The current exhibition at Manchester City Art Gallery ‘Do It’ is an interactive and engaging participatory exhibition.
Berlin has developed a huge transport infrastructure over the years and will take you almost anywhere you wish to go. With an unlimited travel ticket around the city for a week Claire Cooper kept a record of various different railways she used during the trip. Its a very complex system for sure but with quite a few trains and trams caught during the time spent there it became a lot easier.
Our third year students attended a talk with Ed Watts, who discussed art education through alternative outlets such as the Whitworth Gallery and Career opportunities within the gallery sector.
Ed also runs the alternative camera club in Manchester a regular forum for contemporary alternative photography practices.
