Snapshots from Manchester Metropolitan

Up north, Manchester Metropolitan University exposed the work of over 30 photography students who delve into dramatic landscape, intimate portraiture and eerie still life.

From landscapes to close-ups, black and whites to the brightly hued, the BA Photography degree show at MMU revealed a broad scope of student talents.

Photographers such as Alan Joiner and Elliot Kennedy developed and displayed a group of images focused around specific themes, while Olga Rozenbajgier, focused on capturing isolated figures and close relationships. To create this atmosphere Olga chose to create realities using actors and contrasted that against images of her family.

On the other hand MMU student Stephanie Johnson chose to center her images around the surrealism of fashion and filled her lens with close-ups and details about the fashion process.

For more pictures by these artists as well as shots from the others on display, go here.
