Students from the Warrington campus will host a photography exhibition

STUDENTS will hold a photography exhibition in the University of Chester campus tower in Warrington.

Named Escapism, it celebrates the role of the camera and how it acts as a form of escape.

The university’s third-year students will present a collection of images curated over their senior year on May 5 at 6:30 p.m. and for many students this will be their first exhibition.

Charlotte White, Adam Glowacki, James Taylor, Dan Kanabar, Mia Cooper, Sam Seitbekir and Tee White will all have their work on display illustrating different forms of escape and asking questions about why we want to escape our planet.

The exhibition is organized around a window on different forms of escape, each photographer having a space that represents the theme of their images associated with contextual elements.

A spokesperson for the event said: “Each set of images represents an individual journey. From the Gateway to Emotions, highlighting how out of five topics none are the same, moving on to returning to the rave scene now that Covid is over.

“It also explores how about a trip to your locale where no matter who you are, the atmosphere creates a sense of community and culture.

“He examines the difficulties of society and the ways we seek to escape them or the poetic ways in which color can differ from the normalcy you see.”

Admission to the event is free.
