Photography students hold on-line exhibition
NC Photography students at Ayrshire College have created their first exhibition at the Ayr Campus.
The students organised an exhibition in their Essential Skills class; a collaborative project for their semester two ‘Working with Others’ unit.
The College’s closure due to the coronavirus this week, meant that the students were unable to go ahead with a launch event that had been planned in collaboration with Routes to Retail students.
Undeterred, the students decided to make a feature of their exhibition on the College website, and social media pages instead.
Each student selected two photographs to display, with each image carefully planned to relate to the students’ choice of theme - “What Makes You Happy?”
Students fundraised over £300. Their efforts meant that they were able to order personalised products, printed with their own images. Money raised from the sale of these products will be donated to Alzheimer’s Scotland.
Photography student Pamela McWilliam said, ‘“What Makes You Happy?” An age old question designed to make us take a moment out of our busy schedules to stop and appreciate the things, big and small, that make us smile. Even through the hardest of times.
“We decided on this theme to allow others to view, for a brief second, what makes us happy, and to see if it evokes the same emotions in them. We hope that our images bring you the same sense of joy that they bring us.’
Essential Skills Lecturer, Kerrin Carr said “I’m really proud of how well the students worked together. I’m really impressed with their demonstration of first-class teamwork skills and I am confident that many of this group will go on to further study and a successful career in this field.”
