Loreto photography Georgia Senior has had one of her photographs selected for the 2017 A Level Online Art Exhibition. This image is from a documentary project about issues surrounding homelessness.
The image “Ain’t No Place Like Home” was selected from over 2,400 submissions.
This year, 1,200 aspiring artists attending sixth form colleges or schools submitted their work. Only 49 works of art were selected by the panel: Royal Academician Wolfgang Tillmans, curator Per Rumberg, and RA Schools student Jessy Jetpacks.
Having work chosen to appear in the A-level Summer Exhibition Online is a great achievement for young artists in the UK. Many of these students will go on to develop their talents at art school and in their careers. Students from all over the UK enter their works and the exhibition showcases a rich variety of styles and media: from drawing and video to sculpture and prints, painting and photography.
Held to coincide with the world’s largest open-entry exhibition, the Summer Exhibition, this online equivalent for artists aged 16–18, signals an exciting future for art in this country.
Georgia Senior, reflects on Ain’t No Place Like Home:
This photography project looked at homelessness in Greater Manchester. During this project I came across a group of homeless people living in a camp they called ACE (Alex, Collin and Emma). I talked with them about their experiences being homeless and they were gracious enough to allow me to take photographs of them as well as their ‘homes’. In this specific picture you see Collin and Emma. Camera. 42 x 29.7cm.
Congratulations also go to Jessica Boulton, Summer Booth and Callum Su whose photographs were shortlisted. This in its self is a fantastic achievement.
The Art Department are delighted and very proud of Georgia, Jess, Callum and Summer.
