Bermondsey Street Exhibition for Talented HAB Photographers
HAB girls have their own stunning photography show at the Art Bermondsey Project Space until 25 March, thanks to a project at the school run in partnership with the Olympus photography outreach programme.
The girls have been using top-of-the-range Olympus cameras for a photography project on the theme of 'surfaces', with each Year 10 girl submitting her three best images to the Bermondsey Street gallery.
The show opened with a private view and an announcement of the winners, with first prize going to Rylette for the amazing image below which she called Burnt.
Well done to all the group for an excellent project and a truly amazing exhibition.
Second place: Victoria
Third Place: Niambi
Honourable mention: Sabria
Rylette receives her prize.
"The quality and serious intent of the photographs produced by the girls at Harris Academy Bermondsey ably demonstrate that we should not be misled by the plethora of camera-phone snappy snaps that pollute the airwaves. Young people do, in fact, have a very sophisticated take on creative expression through the visual arts." Mike Von Joel, artistic director, Art Bermondsey Project Space.
Second prize being presented to Victoria.
Niambi receives her prize.
“I’ve enjoyed this project as it has given me the opportunity to widen how I view the world around me. It has given me the chance to look at things in a different way: to see beauty where I wouldn’t usually find something of beauty.” HAB photography student
The private view began with a visit to the gallery by our girls, where they had a Q&A with artist Nick Malone.
