Richard Young Gallery and London College of Fashion present ‘Capsule’ an exhibition of work by forthcoming 2009 graduates from BA (Hons) Fashion Photography. This is a collaborative project in support of emerging photography talent between celebrity photographer Richard Young, London College of Fashion and the BA Fashion Photographers. An amazing opportunity to showcase work at the launch of any career!
Curated by Paris based fashion photographer Martine Houghton and fashion designer Kenneth McKenzie of menswear label sixeightsevensix, Capsule will showcase highlights from 40 entries from the class of 2009. Richard Young, alongside LCF alumna Wendy Bevan who since graduating in 2004 has been commissioned by Russian Vogue, POP and i-D Magazine will judge entries. Alongside this Simon Coleman from Nikon have generously donated a camera and equipment worth more than £1,000 to the student with the most 'creative potential'.
Young said, “I am thrilled to working with London College of Fashion to showcase the work of their talented fashion photographers in my gallery. I am looking forward to judging what I’m sure will be a very high calibre of work that highlights each student’s unique flair and talent. There is no doubt that they have chosen a challenging and competitive career, which in my experience, is one of the most exciting and rewarding that anyone could dream of. By providing support to emerging talent I hope to help the next generation follow in my footsteps and launch their own successful careers.”
Course Director Edward Barber said, “We’re delighted to be working with Richard, one of the UK’s most successful photographers. With our minds never far from the economic downturn it is fantastic to see investment and support from our industry for up and coming photographers. Now in its sixth year, BA Fashion Photography provides a unique learning environment for students to graduate with a strong signature style and a firm grounding in fashion photography. The opportunity to show in such a prestigious photographic venue reinforces the importance of our graduates within the creative industries.”
