Our photography students were given an amazing opportunity when they welcomed world-renowned photographer, Ken Grant, to speak to them about his work.
Ken Grant delivered an excellent guest lecture to a packed audience of our photography degree students this week. Ken Grant has photographs in galleries around the world, including the Museum of Modern Art in New York, and is known for his images of working class life, particularly in his hometown of Liverpool.
In the lecture, Ken Grant gave students an insight into how his work developed, by taking students through the different stages of his career, along with examples of photographs he had taken along the way.
Head of Media & Creative Arts at the college, Lawrence Magee, said:
It was a fantastic insight into the life of an artist who has committed his life to photography. He has a wonderful way of delivering, revealing anecdotes about each image and the back story behind his photographs; an hour wasnt long enough. This was an amazing opportunity to inspire our students and to find out where a career in photography may take them.
