Otago Polytechnic

Share in the innovation and creativity of Otago Polytechnic’s Digital Photography students this week.

 Experience the best of the year’s work in a striking and thought-provoking exhibition, which opens to the public on Tuesday 6 November and continues until Sunday 11 November at The Hub.

The first event in Otago Polytechnic’s month-long Student Showcase, the exhibition features work by 30 students from the New Zealand Diploma in Digital Photography (Level 6) and NZ Certificate in Digital Photography (Level 5) programmes*.

Digital Photography lecturer Alysha Bailey says the exhibition is more than a celebration of learners’ skills with a camera.

“It is the culmination of a year spent networking, developing business ideas, working with clients, learning how to market and promote themselves, and collaboration among group members.

“The exhibition is not an assessment. It is a showcase of their work. The selection of the works is left entirely up to students.

“Self-reflection and peer critique is important. So the classes sit down and work through what images they think make the grade for an exhibition,” Alysha says.

“Once they’ve decided what they will exhibit, the students then have to print their work. Seeing their photos come to life in a physical form is really exciting.

“The students are also excited – and a little nervous – about showing their year’s work.”
