“The project has been a great way for the students to test the reception and impact of their work, through exposure to an audience far removed from the cultural context that they are used to. This means they need to question all their assumptions about how their work may be read, and also encourages them to look for connections and dialogue, in a truly global sense, through images.”

“This kind of brief not only gives the students the opportunity to gain skills for future employment, but it will also equip them to take advantage of freelance opportunities. For example, they’ve been problem-solving, working in a team, and managing their time and being flexible in order to communicate halfway across the world. They’ve also been using digital tools to get in touch and share work.”

Matt Bunn, Nottingham College Foundation Degree (FdA) in Photography Practice course leader
