A photographic exhibition Elsewhere, by third-year BA (Hons) Photographic students at UCS is now on show in the Whistler Gallery at DanceEast at Ipswich Waterfront.

This new show, features work by 22 photographic undergraduates, who are all shooting for their final year projects.

So there are a wide variety of images featured in the display.

One of the organisers, Chris Mapey, explained how the group had put together this new exhibition in their final year.

“We will be doing a graduation show and a London show, next year, and this is something extra.”

The methods being used to generate their photographic work are diverse, he said, from medium and large format film, and digital cameras as well as flat-bed scanners combined finishing with either digital prints or traditional darkroom processes to produce prints.

The exhibition runs for one month, and entry is free.
