Photography students from Stratford-upon-Avon College will have their work exhibited this weekend as part of a major photography event.  Reclaim Photography, held to showcase the work of West Midlands’ photographers, will take place on Saturday 16 April across three sites in Birmingham and Wolverhampton.

17 exceptionally talented Year 1 and Year 2 BTEC Photography students from the College will have a selection of their finest photos exhibited at the Black Country Living Museum in Dudley, the Light House Media Centre in Wolverhampton and the Mander Centre in Wolverhampton.   The photographs displayed will be auctioned in support of the charity Ladies Fighting Breast Cancer.

Year 2 Photography student Gio de Luca Blakeman’s work will be displayed at the Black Country Living Museum.  “It’s exciting that the public will get to see my best photographs. I’m really proud of them and I’m keeping my fingers crossed that they’ll raise a lot of money for the charity!”

Photography lecturer Kimberley Malins said “The College is delighted to play a part in this event and to help raise money for Breast Cancer. The students have produced some superb work. Their photographs are highly professional and combine creativity with an excellent eye for composition, and I’m very proud of what we are putting on display for the public.”

The students’ photos can be viewed at all venues from 10:00am to 3:30pm.  So come along on April 16th and view the fantastic work produced by our budding local photographers – and support a very worthwhile charity.
