OUR GCSE and A Level Photography students have really had to think outside the box during the lockdown period in order to come up with interesting new ways in which their coursework could fulfil their sustained and personal investigation projects.

Studio lighting? Not a problem; they made their own DIY studios at home. No models? No problem; they used themselves or got family members to pose for them.

Antonio Longo, Head of Photography at King’s Ely Senior, said: “I am so impressed by how proactive and dedicated the students have been in achieving the very best outcomes under difficult times, where regular Teams meetings have been used as the major delivery tool, along with group and individual discussions.

“Students have researched, developed ideas and used lockdown to experiment with themes such as light and dark, portraiture, still life, movement, urban/street photography, and fantastic and strange.”

The images featured here celebrate some of the work of the following students: Arabella Guyer, Charlie Boyle, Gregory Pozdniakov, Daniel Kember, Dominic Illsley, Elizabeth Charlton-Hunt, Francesca Stevens, Grace Loveday, Namo Sajarattanachote, James Schoenberg, Joseph Beeney, Molly Whymark, Neha Soni, Nicholas Denny, Paige Newell and Thomas Bateman.

Congratulations all!
