Free Range// Photo WEEK #1

It is the time of the year, when graduates present the fruits of their labour (or consequences of their laziness) to the general public. With many group shows opening their doors across the country, Free Range provides a good opportunity to see a wide selection of work in one room. Spread over two weeks, photographic shows present creative talent from more than twenty UK universities.

Seeing work in this context allows you to draw interesting parallels and trace signature styles of different institutions. At the first week’s show, the University of Westminster and Edinburgh College of Art stood out from the crowd with many creative and professionally executed projects. My personal highlights include:

Elizabete Rancane: Couple Portraits in the Age of Globalization

The Plymouth College of Art room had some cleaver presentation ideas, although looked more like a sculpture than a photography show, plus overstaffed with super-enthusiastic students, jumping from every corner and offering to have a conversation about their work – not a good move.

I am very much look forward to the second week’s opening this Thursday 20th June.
