“Lux” is the final year exhibition by HND Photography students from South Eastern Regional College, Bangor. Each photographer has produced work based on a self- identified and self-initiated project, the culmination of a sustained period of investigation. The exhibition represents individual approaches to a range of diverse subjects such as light, still life, space and memory.
Lewis McClatchey’s series of still-life images is based around household objects. The plastered surface of china cups and saucers homogenises the objects creating familiar yet unsettling imagery.
Evie Williamson’s series captures the play of found light, creating images which are physically fragmented and demonstrate a tonal journey across the frame; metaphors for the transient nature of life.
Michelle Moloney’s “archival traces” is a visual exploration of boglands on the island of Ireland. The work is primarily concerned with these landscapes as repositories, sites of memory, of preservation: dormant fragments of the past.
Katie Marshall’s “Kioku” explores childhood memories by encapsulating the spirit of a location and the resulting experiences in a playful and surreal manner. This work is inspired by past work entitled “Interpreting Anxiety”
Sophie McAtasney’s series of still life images is based on making common foods iconic through abstract, non-objective photography that doesn’t have an immediate association with the outside world.
Eris Crawley’s work involves playing with light and reflection. It is about turning the insignificant, significant. Capturing the beauty in the everyday.
