The End :)

Two exciting days and it eventually came to an end. We had almost 200 guests, very positive comments in our guest book and, what is the most important, so much fun :). I absolutely loved every second of it and couldn't ask for anything better.
Just want to say big thanks to our sponsors Clipper Tea and Dragon Soop for providing us with their products and also thanks to everyone involved - my amazing team!

We are on Strong Island

The Big Picture

The people organising and exhibiting in The Big Picture exhibition are all second year Photography students at Portsmouth University. The work has been taken from the first brief in their Documentary Practices unit and they have had to organise it themselves as well as considering the form of the exhibition, location, publicity, funding, online presence, catalogues etc.
As ‘The Big Picture’ suggests the venue is a cinema. No.6 Cinema in fact. This will be a great opportunity to give something unusual and interesting for the viewer. A place that you can sit and relax and watch the images on screen. be sure to check for more info.

Strong Island is a local portal that promotes art in Portsmouth :

We are going to do some kind of lottery - wagamama's vouchers to win!

I can't wait !!!

about my work

Little info about my work for exhibition:

'Territories' means something more for me then just a place or selected area. I interpret it as a borders, walls make people kind of trapped and what comes with it, closed minded. My approach is more psychical than physical. Everything depends on our point of view, place of birth etc. In my photographs I try metaphorical approach to the subject.

to see more come to our exhibition !
