University of Central Lancashire Ba Hons Photography Graduate Show 2011 Review

UCLan is launching the first ever MA in Travel Photography - and on the strength of this showing from Christopher T. Finch, Lizzie Godfrey, Teresa Roberts and Richard Lewis Pryce it should be a bloomin' good course.

Photography by Christopher T. Finch.

UCLan, University of Central Lancashire presented a very clear collection of experimental work in their stand alone space as part of Free Range at the Truman Brewery.

Christopher T. Finch works with primitive home made cameras and digital technology. For his final show he presented a selection of pore framing facial close ups, various characters layered closely, almost on top of each other.

Lizzie Godfrey has obviously been influenced by the political climate. In a book titled The Fire This Time? she followed protestors through anti cuts marches earlier this year. Photographs were accompanied with lots of text to explain the evolution of her thought process too.

Teresa Roberts produced a book too: The Maasai: Changing of Traditions mapped the ways that Western culture is influencing this nomadic people.

Richard Lewis Pryce looked through a blur onto the streets of London. Apologies for the lack of artwork but there was nowt in his online portfolio and my shot was rubbish. Shame I can’t show you because it was very clever stuff.

Jennifer Colvin did some interesting things with resin and bits of collected ephemera.

The University of Central Lancashire is starting a new MA in Travel Photography this September – the course will engage in global politics, sustainable development and environmental issues, conservation and colonialism. Modules will be field based and the first will take place in Kenya. Maaaaan, if I didn’t have a magazine to run and a life to be responsible for then I would so run away and take this course.

  1. Hello, you have represented my work in a false manner, my work was in fact photographed in Preston (Lancashire)where I studied at university, not in London itself, not to be rude, but in future you should check all the details of an artists work before making public comments about them.

    Ah, nice to meet you Richard! What a shame you did not instead email me with these details (which I could have added) and with copies of your photographs to add to the blog. I go to a lot of trouble to review the shows. All the best x
