Congratulations to UWTSD Swansea College of Art Photojournalism & Documentary Photography graduate Chloe Davies, who has been selected by Canon to represent the UK at the Matera 2019 Open Futures as part of the Canon Student & Teachers Development European Initiative.

Chloe Davies

Swansea College of Art will be the only UK University represented, alongside representatives from 27 EU countries.

Chloe has been invited, along with her mentor, Siân Addicott, Programme Director of Photojournalism & Documentary Photography at UWTSD’s Swansea College of Art to attend a week-long residency in Matera, Italy. Matera is 2019 European Capital of Culture.

Siân said: “I am delighted to be accompanying Chloe out to Italy on Sunday. It's wonderful that Chloe's photographic skills have been recognised and that she has been given this opportunity by the city of Matera and Canon. During our time in Matera we will work collaboratively on creating some images for an exhibition curated by the Artistic Director of Matera European Photography, which will be displayed in summer 2019 as part of the official programme of Matera Capital of Culture. The exhibition will afterwards be donated to the archives of the city of Matera.”
