Selection of work by Plymouth University students Daniel Whiteley and David Eames

Plymouth College of Art’s annual Degree Shows are soon to take place and will include work from students graduating from their BA (Hons) Photography course. This programme focuses on a blend of creative and critical practice, examining and encouraging the many types of photographic image-making that emerge from photography as contemporary art.

Here we showcase two students’ work – Daniel Whiteley and David Eames. Of his work, Daniel says “These images are from a series entitled The Sublime, in which I explored how industrial landscapes can still be beautiful. Many photographers, such as Edward Burtynsky and Mitch Epstein, use this subject matter in order to portray environmental and political issues that are impacting both the environment and the landscape, so I believe it’s relevant in today’s society.”

Covering three buildings, four floors and more than 20 outstanding exhibition spaces full of inspirational thinking and making, Plymouth College of Art provides a space where people come together, explore new horizons, and push the boundaries of creative practice.

With open doors across all their working studios, guests are invited to explore cutting-edge facilities such as Fab Lab Plymouth and their onsite £8 million dedicated crafts workshops for ceramics, glass and metalwork. An eclectic range of mediums, both modern and traditional, will be exhibited across the college — including film, photography, fine art installation, fashion design, game arts, illustration, glassworks, ceramics, animation, 3D printing and so much more. The show runs from 8th – 21st June.
