The Usual

Artist: Aleksandrs Puhovs, Barton Peveril Sixth Form College
Medium: Digital photograph

Taken from a project on depicting nostalgia in photography. Both Maxi Magnano and Moreno Sudaro were a great inspiration in how they captured everyday places to create a feeling of nostalgia in their work.

No Response

Artist: Aleksandrs Puhovs, Barton Peveril Sixth Form College
Medium: Digital photograph

When out on a walk, I saw this phone hanging as though someone had just left a call on it. I took the shot in the brief moment people were not walking by.

Unlikely Stillness

Artist: Aleksandrs Puhovs, Barton Peveril Sixth Form College
Medium: Digital photograph

Taken from a project on depicting nostalgia in photography. A sudden change in weather during a shoot, I was able to take advantage of the fog that made the empty station blend into its surroundings and created a surprisingly calm atmosphere for a place that's usually full of people coming and going.

Light and Dark

Artist: Caitlin Chown, Woodlands Community College
Medium: Digital photograph (taken on an iPhone 15)

This photo represents the juxtaposition of light and dark as hope and a sense of bleakness or a lack of purpose. Maybe it is a feeling of being trapped. Overall I feel it is hopeful as the viewer looks into the distance which is light and spacious.

Unrestrained Urban

Artist: David King, The College of Richard Collyer
Medium: Digital photograph

After visiting London on multiple occasions, I found the city to inspire me and my work. The city is full of chaos but is somehow controlled in its own unique way. This image takes a slice of that chaos and accumulates it into one colourful depiction of the city.

Stepping Down to the Dome

Artist: Denis Peters, City College Southampton
Medium: Digital photograph with Nikon Z6ii camera, with DX 50-250 lens set at aperture F/13, Exposure 1/100s and ISO 200

Whilst looking out of the rear of the art room at college, I liked the way the tall square buildings appeared to form steps down towards the round green roof of the mosque building.

Nostalgia

Artist: Felix Nicolas, Brighton Metropolitan College
Medium: Digital art

The intention of this art piece was to create a feeling that lives in all of us. Memories hazy and familiar. The past glowing with something seemingly unobtainable in the present. It was a time where society and it’s conformity hadn’t quite reached us yet.

Autumn Passing

Artist: James Woodward, Strode College
Medium: Digital long exposure on a Canon EOS RP with a Sigma ART 24-35mm F2 lens

The colours of all the autumn leaves are all stunning, the grass and flowers are all very luscious and green but in a photo I think that all these different colours make the picture seem too busy. In a black and white image you get all the detail in just black and white and all the different colours will be showed in how light or dark the object or thing is. As well as this the black and white gives the image an almost antique feel which I quite enjoy in a landscape photograph or any photo of the outside and wilderness.

Watching and Waiting

Artist: Jamie Frost, The College of Richard Collyer
Medium: Photograph

There are so many people in this photography all with different experiences of life, yet they are all clustered together on a stand in chaotic borough market whilst there are hundreds of people moving around them.  Their faces look anonymous and expressionless – you cannot see if they are happy or sad, they are simply just emotionless, this is why I have titled this image, ‘Watching and Waiting’.

Disrupted Environment

Artist: Keeley Webster-Richardson, The College of Richard Collyer
Medium: Digital print/paper collage

To make this piece of work, I photographed a landscape in Wales that I thought looked beautiful and was a good representation for the landscape we have across the country and printed this out onto two copies of A4 paper. Then, I crumpled and ripped one up and laid it on top of the original one so that it lined up to which I then re-photographed to give me a new image. The message behind this piece of work is that I am trying to show how fragile our environment is and that if we don't look after it, it will slowly get disrupted and distorted until it's no longer recognisable and it will be far too gone that there will be no point of return. My aim is to spread awareness about the environmental damage we cause in our day to day lives, that has small negative impacts that we don't notice until it's too late.

Untitled

Artist: Molly Marshall
Medium: Digital photograph

My thought process was how things change as you get older, losing the feelings of amazement when going to places like this funfair.

The Nature Within Us

Artist: Nathalie Moran, The College of Richard Collyer
Medium: Digital photograph

This photo shows the relationships between humans and nature and how it lives within us and how it has a strong effect on us due to it being around us everyday. I think people take nature for granted even though it brings us so much in the world.
