For the last twenty weeks, seventeen second year Photographic Art students have been creating works for this site-specific brief, integrating themselves within the local community, each individually responding to different aspects of the 63 mile long tidal river, creating a diverse range of personal and explorative art, with themes addressing local heritage, community, and the power of the river.

Work will be on show by photographers:

Jasmine Bell – Macarena Costan – Emma Daly – Conor Elliot – Amy Harris – Danielle Lacovou – Phillip Kenworthy

Natasha Lowe-Sellers- Rachel Lucas – Emmaleen Miller – Mihai Moldavanu – James Moore – Meg Nicholls – Brodie Phillips

Sophie Porter – Rebekah Prentice – Lacey Wheeler
