Coleg Gwent, Foundation Degree Photographic Exhibition

An exhibition of student photographic work in the Futures Gallery of the Pierhead Building in Cardiff Bay by students on the Foundation Degree in Photography at Coleg Gwent, Crosskeys.

The students were asked to produce an archive of documentary photography that sits in place alongside ‘The Valleys Archive’. The students were allowed to choose from a variety of themes (industrial wasteland, regeneration, people, a local society, an overview of a town, empty space) in relation to documenting the South Wales area.

The resulting photographs focus on man-made and natural elements found within the students local area. They also observe rural, human, urban and industrial elements, as well as documenting society and change.
