This term I have been looking to expand my project on the community of Gweek. Over the past few months I have been overwhelmed by the amount of activity taking place in what first appears a small village in Cornwall.
Rather than trying to document everything, I decided to focus in on one element, a community within a community that is the Holifield Farm Project, focusing primarily on the Day Care Centre, a facility for adults with learning difficulties and additional needs.
These are some of the photographs taken from my first two visits. It has been so much fun, from tending to calfs and chickens, to art and crafts sessions, and participating in the running of the farm built on an ethos of sustainable development and renewable energy.
You can see some photographs taken at the annual festival held at the farm in past posts from my visit in September last year.
Bloody love this song!
A review of our 2nd year Press and Editorial Photography exhibition still showing in Calumet, London.
I also got a little mention :)
After hearing on twitter Tuesday afternoon that the 2nd year editorial and photojournalism students from Falmouth were holding an exhibition in London I felt it was a bit of a given that had to be seen. Held at Calumet photographic in Euston there was a room with a vast range of work from the students. With a good mixture of Photojournalism and editorial style photography there was plenty to see even though it was only a small room. An impressive amount of narratives and story behind the photographs and also some impressive visual styles the students possessed made me think to what there 3rd year show was going to be like.
It was great to see such a dense and rich showcase of this approach to photography from a vast number of photographers is hard to come by. I had in my mind to choose a particular few that stood out a little bit more so to me that some others they included Holly Hayward, Arthur Hauges, Alex Lambert, Tom Pullen, Jordan Stephens, and Shannon Kelly. After visiting their blogs and portfolio sites I am eager to do a feature on the blog of all of their work. I knew Falmouth has produced some great photographers in the past however they are producing some really strong work and even though they may be in their corner of the country these graduates will be ones to keep an eye on!
