Swansea College of Art celebrates 20 years of Photojournalism at city exhibition


An exhibition celebrating two decades of Photojournalism at UWTSD’s Swansea College of Art is being hosted at Dynevor.

The exhibition brings together a diverse range of work by Photojournalism & Documentary Photography students and graduates at Swansea College of Art.

From bearing witness to the inauguration of Barack Obama, intensely personal explorations of the ups and downs of family life, to documenting the plight of refugees and asylum seekers, this exhibition provides just a glimpse of the wide range of subjects covered by talented students over the years.

Siân Addicott, UWTSD Swansea College of Art’s Programme Director, Photojournalism & Documentary Photography said: “The photographic image retains its power to highlight the under-represented in society and brings major issues to the forefront of public consciousness. In a time of fake news and personality politics, the photograph’s ability to make us question truth has never been more important.”

Visitors are able to buy A3 copies (printed on archival photographic paper) of the work on show for just £20 per print. All money raised will go to the EYST hardship funds for refugees and asylum seekers.

Sian said: "The hardship fund exists purely through donations from individuals to support destitute asylum seekers when in crisis. The hardship fund supports our community's most vulnerable people who rely on very small amounts of money to survive."

The exhibition is open until November 9.
