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.”
