Blackpool Sixth A Level Photography students have had work chosen to be part of the Lancashire Photography Festival, being held this year in Preston City Centre as a free public open-air photography exhibition.
Their work will be shown alongside many professional and amateur photographers in key locations around the city, with a special space dedicated to our 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 our 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 11 Blackpool Sixth students to be part of the final festival exhibition! Well done to all participants for making their job so tough with such great work and congrats to the winners!
The festival begins on April 2nd and will be on display to the public until May 23rd. If you can’t make it to Preston while the festival is on, you can enjoy the work online at www.enjoyshow.co.uk
