Entitled ‘AS IS’, this year’s City of Bristol College FdA Professional Photography students’ Graduation Show took place in mid-June at Centrespace Gallery, St Leonard’s Lane.
The show delivered outstanding photographic works ranging from edgy unseen documentaries, photographic explorations of racial identity, fresh approaches to studio portraiture, photography and performance, concept driven landscape, the interface between photography and virtual reality and more produced using both contemporary and traditional technologies.
Rebecca Goddard, course leader, comments: “I was really excited about the diversity and depth of the work on show this year. This cohort engaged with ideas and subjects really creatively to deliver thought provoking, poetic and memorable images. We are very proud of the exhibition and of our hands-on approach with small teaching groups and accessibility of teaching staff at the College.”
As well as exhibiting, students also produced a range of portfolios, photobooks, zines, cards and more.
Works were for sale throughout the exhibition and photographers are also available for commissioned work.
