Eight University of Westminster photography students dominated the Fresh Faced and Wild Eyed exhibition at the Photographers Gallery this week.

Their graduating work was on show amongst just 22 graduates’ work from photographic courses across the UK. The show ‘aims to draw attention to innovative new talents from a range of photographic fields and is dedicated to recognising and nurturing new talents.’ Two of our six finalists will also gain further development through the Gallery’s mentorship scheme.

All our University of Westminster Photographic arts courses were represented:

Basil Al-Rawani, Photographic Studies MA (Façade)
Iris Brember, Photographic Arts BA (Photographs)
Jack Day, Photography BA (Vehicles)
Daniel Mayrit, Photographic Arts BA (Suburban Scenes)
Tania Olive, Photography BA (Dyke of our Time)
Tina Remiz, Photographic Arts BA (Krievi)
Sunil Shah, Photography BA (Uganda Stories)
Anastasia Shpilko, Photojournalism MA (Between Black and White Clouds)

Andy Golding, Head of Photography and Film at the University of Westminster, attended the opening on Monday and said: ‘it is wonderful to see so many of our students exhibited in the leading Photography Gallery in the UK. Their work is at the cutting edge of artistic practice and deals with crucial contemporary concerns in both form and content. This is a great achievement from our department which continues to deliver such dynamic courses, and it is fantastic to see so many of our academics and technical staff here this evening in support.’
