FdA Pho­tog­ra­phy stu­dent Reece Richards has been invit­ed to share his mem­o­ries of exhibit­ing work at Nottingham’s Vic­to­ria Cen­tre as part of their 50th anniver­sary celebrations.

Through­out his pho­tog­ra­phy course Reece Richards has had many oppor­tu­ni­ties to show­case his work at pub­lic venues and in 2021, along with his FdA pho­tog­ra­phy course mates he had the oppor­tu­ni­ty to exhib­it his work to thou­sands of passers-by on the large screen outside.

Last year Vic­to­ria Cen­tre invit­ed mem­bers of the pub­lic to share their fond mem­o­ries of the cen­tre. Reece got in touch to share his expe­ri­ences of hav­ing col­lege work exhib­it­ed to thou­sands of mem­bers of the pub­lic on sev­er­al occa­sions and was invit­ed to star in the cam­paign, which will see Reece’s work exhib­it­ed at the cen­tre again.

Reece told us how through­out his course, his con­fi­dence has improved, and it has tak­en him to places around the world to shoot things he nev­er imag­ined before.

My course has helped me in so many areas and pho­tog­ra­phy has tak­en me to places I thought I’d nev­er vis­it to do things I nev­er thought I would be able to do. I have trav­elled to France, Bel­gium and Japan and have been an offi­cial pho­tog­ra­ph­er at Nottingham’s Win­ter Won­der­land and Not­ting­ham Com­ic Con. Because of com­ing to col­lege my con­fi­dence has improved. When I first start­ed I was very shy, but as I got stuck into my course I start­ed to find my con­fi­dence and devel­op new and unique skills that will be very use­ful in the future. I have future plans to build my own stu­dio and estab­lish a pho­tog­ra­phy business.

Nigel Wheat­ley, Cen­tre Direc­tor at Vic­to­ria Cen­tre, said:

While our 50th birth­day cam­paign is a chance to reflect on our own his­to­ry, it’s also the per­fect oppor­tu­ni­ty for those who have been con­nect­ed to the cen­tre to share their own mem­o­ries. One such per­son is Reece Richards, a bud­ding pho­tog­ra­phy stu­dent at Not­ting­ham Col­lege, who’s work cap­tur­ing the city has been proud­ly dis­played on our giant TV screen.

Quite apt­ly, Reece’s project in 2021 explored the pass­ing of time through spe­cif­ic loca­tions in Not­ting­ham. So, it was fit­ting that we invit­ed him back to cel­e­brate the centre’s 50th anniver­sary as part of our 50 years of cap­tur­ing the moment’ campaign.

We’re thrilled to have been able to give stu­dents like Reece the plat­form to show­case their work, while also demon­strat­ing what this city has to offer. I look for­ward to see­ing what he and his fel­low Not­ting­ham Col­lege stu­dents go on to do in the future.”
