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. (www.coultart.com/toys)

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. (www.luciahrda.com)

Julie Derbyshire, ‘Fragile Alchemy’

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

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. (www.edurneaginaga.com)
