The photographs on display examine and reveal the ordinary and extraordinary, from intimate stories of family members, to internationally significant social issues from such diverse locations as Saudi Arabia, Russia, Belarus, Cyprus, Yemen, Brazil and Armenia.
‘Here and There’ offers a glimpse of the changing face of photojournalism as it transitions from the newspaper pages to the exhibition walls, by some of its most talented new exponents.
The exhibition is curated by course staff Max Houghton and Ben Edwards and is supported by London’s leading photographic printers, Metro Imaging, which will be awarding one student a year-long mentoring opportunity, to be judged by Steve Macleod, creative director of Metro Imaging, and Jason Larkin, MA Photojournalism alumnus and award-winning photographer.
A limited edition catalogue, with a foreword by course leader Max Houghton, is also available.
The exhibition opens with a private viewing on Tuesday 11 September from 6.30pm.
