OUR BEST LECTURE YET!
Very interesting, approachable, did not sugar coat anything, amazing guy and great influence, took time to look at our work and answer questions, everybody got involved, I would say this is due to it being a small group and very one to one.

POP2 Photography Interim Show

Barking & Dagenham College

Students represented: BA (Hons) Photography, FdA Photography, HNC Photography, BTEC L3 Photography

POP Playlist: Washed Out, Phoenix, Caribou, Breathe Owl Breathe, Lescop, The Horrors, Fujiwara Hiroshi

 

Pop

Verb: Make a sudden, sharp, explosive sound

 

A sample of imagery from students across the photography department at the interim stages of their programmes. Selected randomly within a very short time frame, many of these images were re-appropriated to form new representations of what already exists, creating and presenting new possibilities of what a photography may be. A follow-up from last year, POP2 was a multi-projection event accompanied by a selection of sudden, sharp sounds from France, UK, USA, and Japan. Unfortunately we were not able to represent every student due to non-availability of everyone’s work during the two day process.
