Free Range Shows: Stunning Student Photography at the Old Truman Brewery

Last Thursday 12 June, I made my way to Free Range Shows at the Old Truman Brewery for a fantastic exhibition of graduate photography.

Here are some of my favourite works:

Trevor Coultart, ‘Childhood’

The striking colourful backgrounds and accompanying nostalgic quotes from the toys owners, offer fun mediation on childhood memories. (

Lucia Hrda, ‘Traces’

Nostalgia was also visible in Lucia Hrda’s work in which she created a self-portrait in her great-grandmother’s likeness to explore genetic legacies and celebrate the individuality which this forges. (

Julie Derbyshire, ‘Fragile Alchemy’

Julie Derbyshire’s soothing photographs really stood out with the pastel colours complimenting the delicate compositions of the series. (

Edurne Aginaga, ‘Lie Down’

I fell in love with Edurne’s playful use of colour, perspective and objects. Avoiding digital manipulation, each work arrested my attention as I tried to figure out how it had come together. (
