The Picture Me project has given our students an opportunity to create work that is presented and seen in a live context. The chance to have their work seen on a wider global scale has given the students a sense of ambition and allowed them to make links with professional photographers.
Despite lockdown and unprecedented times, I feel the students have produced some powerful photographs and the Picture Me Instagram has been a really successful platform to present students work. Picture Me has allowed students to be creative during this unsettling time and working with students from Africa has allowed them to share experiences and given an insight into another’s own lives; giving the work focus and purpose.
It continues to be a very worth-while venture!
