Student perceptions on display

PHOTOGRAPHIC students from Claremont and Elizabeth Colleges have showcased more than 50 pieces of work as part of the “Snapping Perceptions – We Are Who We Are’ exhibition, held late last year at Northgate Shopping Centre.

Participating students were encouraged to interpret the theme in their own way, with the option to digitally enhance or manipulate the images.

The result was a diverse range of photographs that showcased the students’ board abilities and insights into their view on life.

The winner was selected by a public voting system, with the Champion Photograph awarded to Stephanie Coe of Claremont College for her image titled “Don’t Hide Your Pride”.

Glenorchy City Council community development officer Lisa Rudd, who curated the exhibition, thanked the students and teachers for their strong commitment to the exhibition.

“The opportunity to be involved provided students with an excellent opportunity for self-exploration,” she said.

“I made sure to encourage the students not to create art just to have it judged by others, but to also create art for themselves.”

The photographic exhibition, which is organised by the Glenorchy City Council, will be held once more in 2018 with the theme of “community”.
