EMERGING PHOTOGRAPHERS TO EXHIBIT NEW WORK

 

Three up-and-coming photographers at the University of Lincoln are to showcase their work at a special photography show.

 

Third year Photography students Dominic Dimmock, Lorna Smith and Steve Hatton will be displaying their work alongside two other emerging photographers from the East Midlands.

 

The exhibition, titled ‘3 Degrees’, will illustrate a wide mix of subjects including personal experience, natural environments and controversial movements in modern science.

The students’ work will be exhibited at the Picture House Centre for Photography in Leicester, which has recently received Arts Council funding.

They were asked to offer work to the exhibition after they were talent spotted by the gallery’s owner, who was extremely impressed with the creativity of their images.

“This is a significant achievement for our students, particularly since they are only just beginning their third year of study,” said Keith James, programme leader for Contemporary Lens Media at the Lincoln School of Art and Design.

‘3 Degrees’ is on show from Saturday 9th October until Friday 19th November, with an opening afternoon chat with the exhibiting photographers between 12.00pm and 2.00pm on 9th October.

The exhibition is open on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday between 1.00pm and 9.00pm, and on Friday between 1.00pm and 5.00pm. The show will finish on Saturday and is open between 10.00am and 2.00pm. Admission is free, and the show is open to the public.
