St. Pirans Day Photography

Tretherras Photography Students have had their works selected and displayed to celebrate St. Pirans Day.

Work by A Level and AS Level students form part of an exhibition displayed at Newquay’s Lighthouse Cinema from the 16th February until 6th March 2014.

The works, many of them inspired by St Piran, are varied in subject matter as well as photography techniques. The art pieces range from multiple and long exposures, light painting, black and white film photography to digital montage and manipulation works.

Jake Shuttleworth manipulates the code of an image, known as glitch technique, in order to change the appearance of the original image whilst Jody Hills has montaged hand drawn graphic elements with digital photographs.

Mr Philip Strugnell, Head of Art at Newquay Tretherras commented, “It’s a great exhibition and we are very pleased to be part of it. The photography students at Tretherras have produced some fantastic and innovative pieces of work in both digital and traditional film photography and I believe are pushing the boundaries of the type of work normally seen in a school context.’

The larger collection of artwork includes works submitted by pre-school children and college students from the Newquay area.

In May Tretherras Photography Students will be exhibiting alongside local professionals again at the Lighthouse Cinema for the “Capture Exhibition” as part of the Art8 Arts Festival.
