The Photographic Angle (TPA), a unique organisation that supports contemporary emerging photographic artists, including students, graduates and enthusiasts, has awarded a substantial bursary to third year Photoart student Kimberly Sanders.
The bursary consists of £3,000 and was awarded towards Sanders’ degree project “It’s Raining Indoors” in which she explores how a photograph has the capacity to capture a significant moment that we may which to keep; the series questions whether photography itself can preserve memory. Sanders suggests that pictures act as a two dimensional keepsake where we recall the image rather than the memory itself. Sanders creates abstract images detailing traces she also produces installations incorporating found objects on the sustained theme of personal memory.
MFA Documentary Photography student Scetlana Illic was also awarded a bursary from The Photographic Angle.
“The School of Art & Design is delighted that these students are receiving this significant support to help them realise important photographic projects for the final part of their studies. The selection panel was impressed by the quality and ambition of all the applications. The work of the two successful candidates demonstrated a considerable and unique contribution to the study and practice of photography. The selection panel comprised Dr Paul Cabuts (Associate Head, School of Art & Design), Mark Durden (Professor of Photography), Peter Bobby (Course Leader Photographic Art) and Lisa Barnard (Senior Lecturer Documentary Photography).”
