Highlights from the Free-Range photography shows
Yesterday we headed over to the Truman Brewery in Brick Lane to trawl several acres of warehouse space looking for the best work at the raft of photography degree shows hosted by Free-Range. Colleges represented included Swansea Metropolitan University, UCA Farnham, Nottingham Trent, University of West England, and Stevenson College Edinburgh...
First up, and a graduate of the University of the West of England (UWE), Eleanor Heaford exhibited a series of images of sniffer dogs entitled Distinguished Members of a Working Society.

The Swansea Metropolitan University show featured work from graduates of both its Photography in The Arts BA as well as its Photojournalism BA. Dan Carroll exhibited four large prints from his series of Beauty Spots images which all show people gazing out to sea from various clifftops.

Timothy Nordhoff also exhibited several large prints from his series of British folk with their guns...

Also in the Swansea space, I spotted a series of great documentary images by Calum Toogood of fishermen who fish the North Sea around Northern Scotland.

In the University of Creative Arts Farnham degree show, I loved Arabella Packford's photos of empty spaces in the South of England.

And in the Nottinham Trent show the calm, perfectly still fashion work of Yen Chi Vo stood out.

After a couple of hours of walking around Truman Brewery's enormous F Block warehouse space, I came across the exhibition area occupied by Stevenson College Edinburgh which showcased work by HND in Professional Photography graduates, as well as work from graduates of the BA Professional Photography course. It provided something of a highlight with all of the exhibited images being of a really impressive standard. Above is a shot by BA graduate Aga Tarnowska, and the shot below by HND graduate Solen Collet.

I think you've made a mistake, UCA Epsom don't have a photography course, so I suspect it was UCA Farnham, looking at the Free Range calendar.
Thanks for the great comments about Stevenson College Edinburgh, glad you liked the work of our students
Thanks for sharing. Especially enjoyed the sniffer dogs. Too bad I couldn't see them at the show. Perhaps next time.
A bit of a bad review, you missed out 5 other colleges/universities that showed work that week. It's not really a review if you only review half of photoweek 2.
It seems as tho you have left of De Montfort university?
Maybe they were left out because CR deemed them a lower standard???
That a bit harsh KJ every uni that showed in free range photo week had very high standard and not one exhibition had poor work they were all good so their was no need for that KJ
Thank you for featuring my sniffer dogs!! Was a great surprised to find i'd been featured in this.
