NP20 Graduation Show Makes Me Feel Brand New, Washed Down With a Special Brew When You're In Newport....
(picture above by Kat Forey from her Cosplay series).
Having mentioned one South Wales/Newport student, it would be remiss of me not to mention the Documentary Photography Graduation Show taking place in Newport at -
University of South Wales, City Campus, Usk Way, Newport, Gwent
7th to 14th June 2013.
Private View, 6th June 2013
And in London, in collaboration with the fun-filled folk from Miniclick, the South Wales/Newport folk will join in a slideshow and talk on Emerging Photographers.
The Attic, Hackney Picture House, 270 Mare Street, London E8 1HE
Wednesday 19th June 2013. Doors open 18.30. Event starts 19.30.
In their first year, theirs was the first class that I taught at Newport (though I haven't taught them since) so I have a soft spot for them because they were so engaging, charming and talented.
Which is apparent in the free newspaper they have produced called NP20.
