Triptych exhibition at Ocean Terminal

Private View - December 11th 2015

18.00 - 21.00

This exhibition showcases work from over 50 students studying at HN1 level in Photography at Edinburgh College. During the two year course students undertake a varied selection of industry standard assignments. This particular work derives from a project set to produce photographs for a new book cover and supporting images for an existing fictional novel. Students have worked through many different creative processes and engaged with traditional darkroom practice. The final prints are hand printed using fibre paper. The different qualities of paper have been research and individually chosen by every student.Students were to produce three images which would reignite an audience with their book choice. They were to use DSLR cameras and could indeed add manipulation through using Photoshop. Final images were then made into large digital negatives (acetate sheets) and contact printed using an enlarger.Many of the students had no prior experience within the traditional printing practice. The brief lasted 12 weeks and along with the 3 final prints students were to hand in a workbook and journal which tracked their creative process.All students showcased here today have successfully passed the brief and we’re delighted to have been supported by The Image Collective and Ocean Terminal.The exhibition runs from Friday 11th December 2015 – Sunday 10th January 2016.If you would like any further information on any of our Photography courses then please visit or
