Christmas show by UCS photography students
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.
It was a chance to showcase their work, and also valuable preparation for two shows later in 2016, their graduation show at UCS and also a stand-alone show, at Hoxton Arches in East London, titled Everywhere.
He said: “We are 22 students, all shooting very different final year projects.
- 1 Emergency services attending incident in Suffolk town
- 2 Double-decker bus bought on eBay becomes new home for evicted Suffolk family
- 3 Unclaimed £83k winning EuroMillions lottery ticket was bought in Suffolk
- 4 Revealed: The most isolated villages in Suffolk
- 5 Suffolk cinema to allow dog owners to bring their pets to watch films
- 6 Former Town striker Chopra out of retirement to join non-league club
- 7 Suspected wanted man chased through Suffolk village
- 8 Body of woman found in river in Hadleigh
- 9 'Abandoned' cottage and studio up for sale after huge renovation
- 10 The Range secures huge logistics hub at new A14 business park
“We have all chosen one image to represent our work for this Pop-Up Christmas exhibition.
“We are the first UCS third year group to do this, and are very grateful to DanceEast.”
Chris,44, is a mature student, and he also runs The Angel pub in Woodbridge.
He said: “I have been a photographer for many years and I wanted to get better.
“UCS has a well regarded photography course and I decided to come here.
“There are 22 of us, from various backgrounds, and various ages, from traditional uni ages to some mature students.
“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.
