On Wednesday 18th January, 25 year 9 students participated in an inspiring and exciting photographic workshop where they were asked to reimagine their future.
By asking a series of thought-provoking questions Photoworks, working in collaboration with Lindsey Smith (Photographic Artist), encouraged the students to explore ideas creatively and challenge perceptions to create innovative photographic art pieces.
If we believe that the future is made from fragments of the past, which parts must we keep for the future? How can we create change and adapt? Who is responsible for the future? How can artists help visualise a better tomorrow?
Students worked with cameras on phones to create “phone sculptures” and then went onto to explore DSLR cameras in a studio setting to create “letters to their future selves”. This was a valuable and enriching experience for all those involved.
