Eleven Blackpool Sixth A Level Photography students have had work selected to be part of the Lancashire Photography Festival. The festival which celebrates the best photographic work from across the county will take place this year in Preston city centre as a free public open-air photography exhibition.
The students’ work will be shown alongside many professional and amateur photographers in key locations around the city, with a special space dedicated to Blackpool Sixth students at The Larder Cafe, 50 Lancaster Road, just next to Preston Guild Hall and the Harris Museum.
The festival organiser, professional lecturer and documentary photographer, Garry Cook, delivered a documentary photography workshop to all of the college’s A level photography groups at the end of February, introducing over 100 students to photo-journalism and inspiring them to tell their personal lockdown story by documenting their own experiences and environments.
From the subsequent work produced, festival organisers selected their favourites, choosing eleven Blackpool Sixth students to be part of the final festival exhibition. The students are the only college students in the county to have work included in the exhibition.
The students with work included in the exhibition are:
The festival begins on Friday 2nd April and will be on display to the public until Sunday 23rd May.
The work can also be enjoyed online at www.enjoyshow.co.uk and @EnjoyTheShowUK on social media.
