Photography students at Harlow College will be launching an exhibition of their work based on the theme ‘The Rising Tide’ at Harlow Library on 1st June.
The exhibition is their response to the 70th Anniversary of The Great Flood of 1953 and the Climate Emergency. Although Harlow is landlocked – something the students were quick to point out when Festival Director Ros Green mooted the theme with them, they made their work in response to the challenges that global interconnectivity creates, i.e fast fashion, fast food, pesticides, plastics, carbon emissions. Their work reflects the impact that Climate Change will have on all of us, whether we are living in Harlow or Tuvala’s sinking islands in the South Pacific.
The exhibition will be on display from 1st-29th June in Harlow Central Library. Please go if you are in the area and let us know what you think of the students’ work.
