Sixth Form photography students exhibit work in the city

16 March 2018

Year 12 A Level Photography students from the Sixth Form College participated in a competition with the global banking and asset management firm, Macquarie Group.

Responding to the brief of mental health and well-being, students interpreted the theme through photographic processes.

In all 17 pieces of work were selected by a judging panel to be displayed at the Macquarie offices in Moorgate, central London. Well done to all students who participated and were selected!

Family and friends of our photographers were encouraged to attend the opening, with one parent saying: “I’m so proud of my daughter, it’s amazing to see her work displayed in a frame and on a wall in such a nice space. All the work reflects the importance of addressing mental health really well.”

Bryan Johnston, Coordinator of Performing and Visual Arts, said: “We are incredibly proud of all the students who entered this fantastic opportunity with Macquarie. It is really impressive and a testament to the students’ skills to see such a range of imaginative, creative responses to such an important subject matter!”

Rachel Engel (regional head of Macquarie group foundation), gave a speech to introduce the exhibition, and said she was “so proud to be able to display such striking images.”
