10TH - 30th January 2019
EXHIBITION PREVIEW 17TH January 6-8PM
(Exhibition closes at 1pm on Wednesday 30th January 2019)
The Medway Photo Festival was set up by the photography department at UCA Rochester in 2009 and this year’s tenth edition will be run from January 17th until January 25th. The festival takes place in Chatham and features exciting new work from Year 2 BA (Hons) students studying Photography and Fashion Photography, and MA students studying Photography and Fashion Photography.
This show is an opportunity for students to express ideas, critically engage with audiences, and make a significant contribution to visual culture. The festival is driven by our students’ work and demonstrates their interest in taking risks while exploring and developing their interests in visual form.
Our students understand that their work should interconnect with the world beyond university on a local, regional and global level and most importantly they are able to harness the power of photography to communicate and draw upon their cultural, social as well as political knowledge and interests.
We trust that our students will have something important to say about life today in order to inform, challenge and captivate not only themselves but you, their audience.
