Svala Ragnars, “ORKA”
In our final exhibition of 2013, London College of Communication presents the work of thirty-one international photographers from the acclaimed MA Photojournalism & Documentary Photography (MAPJD) course, in an exhibition entitled 31 degrees from Thursday 12 – Friday 20 December.
“The LCC MAPJD show is the most anticipated graduate exhibition of its kind with good reason – it’s where you go to spot the photographers of the future.” – Max Houghton, Senior Lecturer MA Photojournalism and Documentary Photography, LCC.
Featuring the work of emerging photojournalists from around the globe and spanning continents, ethnicities and personal boundaries, this exhibition represents the height of photographic practice combined with the probing insight of quality documentary and first-class journalism.
Farhrad Berahman’s. Wonderland of Iran
Like Farhrad Berahman’s, Wonderland of Iran, a revealing insight into the lives of young Iranians forced to live a ‘schizophrenic’ life of public orthodoxy and private liberalism. Farhad was nominated from the World Press Photo as the best young photographer in the MENA region in 2009 and His work has appeared in publications around the globe such as The New York Times, Guardian, Washington post, Figaro and El Paris.
Mark De Rond, “Something Supposedly Fun That I Will Never Do Again.”
Or Mark de Rond, who created a world record for rowing the Amazon, as he pursued his ethnographic and photographic research for his final project, entitled Something Supposedly Fun That I Will Never Do Again.
Magda Rakita, “God made woman, then he jerked”
Magda Rakita was highly commended in the 2013 Ian Parry Award for her project God Made Woman, Then He Jerked, an ongoing study of women’s rights and liberties in Liberia. Where it’s estimated 60 to 90 percent of the female population experienced some form of sexual violence during the country’s 14 year civil war. And yet 10 years since the conflict a woman has held the country’s highest political position. What is the reality for the next generation of girls growing up in post-war Liberia?
Hannah Mornement, “Food Bank Britain”
And Hannah Mornement, is one of many photographers revitalising ideas of ‘concerned photography’ with her project ‘Food Bank Britain’ – please bring a donation for her food bank dumpbin on the night (tinned food most welcome!).
Danielle Peck, Dreamland
Senior Lecturer Max Houghton adds; “addressing questions of environment and relationships, and with approaches ranging from the classically photojournalistic to the contemporary and conceptual, these stories all seem fresh and original. You can see Detroit – as you’ve never pictured it, a fairy-tale from Ecuador and a dreamland in Margate – but what this exceptional group of photographers have in common is a real passion for getting to the heart of their subject.”
