Close Attention

11 – 22 July 2019

Each year, Open Eye Gallery works with photography students from Hugh Baird University Centre, giving guidance and feedback on their projects as they unfold. Here we present our annual exhibition of the students’ final work.

The projects on show are varied, each using photography to open up a different space for reflection: on cultures, personal experiences and meaningful places. Although no brief was set, one common idea running through all the work is the desire to use photography to become closer — to become familiar with ourselves, new situations, others and ways of thinking.

Both the foundation degree and the BA (Hons) Top Up in Digital Imaging and Photography, validated by the University of Central Lancashire, are designed for those wanting to develop advanced practice and a clear understanding of how imagery can be utilised to communicate and express their vision or interpretation of the world.
