Northampton’s changing face is caught on camera for photographic exhibition
PLEASE NOTE THIS EVENT HAS BEEN POSTPONED
The latest instalment of a project documenting the changing face of Northampton will go on public display later this month.
Northampton Forward is the sixth edition of an ongoing series of exhibitions by second year Photography students at the University of Northampton.
The project involves the students working with Northampton Borough Council to record the changing face of Northampton, and, since the first exhibition in 2014, has built up an extensive archive of images documenting major redevelopment projects in across the town.
This year’s exhibition opens with a preview evening on Tuesday 24 March, at the University’s Waterside campus, and then runs until Tuesday 31 March.
It will feature work from 21 students who have documented Northampton’s Market Square, Cultural Quarter, Abington Street, Grosvenor Centre and the Institute for Creative Leather Technologies at Waterside.
As well as creating the work the students are responsible for all aspects of staging the exhibition, from fundraising and publicity to curating the content and layout of the show.
The Northampton Forward preview evening takes place on Tuesday 24 March, from 5pm to 8pm, in the ground floor of the Learning Hub, Waterside, University Drive, Northampton NN1 5PH.
The exhibition then runs from Wednesday 25 to Tuesday 31 March.
