Photography Competition - See the Winners Here

These photographs by Year 10 students were taken as part of a project which will see their worked displayed at the Art Bermondsey Project Space gallery until Saturday.

As part of the project, photographer Ed Sykes, whose work has appeared in The Sunday Times and The Independent, for example, visited the academy to run workshops. He also judged the winning entries, which were announced at a preview of the exhibition on 15th May. The project was sponsored by Olympus.

1st place was Elisabeth for her picture of a light switch.

“The light switch represents happiness and sadness at the same time,” writes Elisabeth. “A light source is revealing yet illuminating providing brightness and exposing us.”

2nd place was Simran for her photography of pots and pans from her kitchen.

“The lighting in the background makes the photo seem like a captured memory. My photo represents memories and family as the kitchen is one of the most important rooms in the house.”

3rd place was Kate, whose picture was taken at Harris Academy Bermondsey.

“This building used to be a tinning factory before it was turned into a school. This is meant to represent the history of London as it shows how buildings change their use over time.”

“A fantastic body of work”

“Year 10 worked really effectively towards the production a fantastic body of work,” said teacher Jennifer Crouch. “They learnt about composition and use of colour and about the importance of taking a moment to just observe the urban environment, looking for interesting perspectives, moments and colour combinations to consider when taking a picture.”

I am immensely proud of year 10 for taking part in this project. To be able to say that you have exhibited your art work in a quite serious art  gallery at the age of 14 or 15 is a very powerful and significant achievement.”

Gus Hussein, Creative Resources Manager, said that the winner, Elisabeth, had attended photography club this year and enjoyed learning about the many aspects of photography. “Her choice of image for the exhibition was fantastic as it crossed many boundaries which can be difficult to achieve in photography as it is conceptual artwork based on an idea and an image. This leaves the viewer to make their own judgements.”

Elisabeth’s prize is a new Olympus camera.  “I hope Elisabeth continues to come to photography club and delve further into the artform with her new impressive camera,” said Gus. “But we must remember it is not the camera that takes a great a photo it is the person behind it. Well done Elisabeth and well done all the students who made the effort to produce a photo for this exhibition.”
