Our Graphic Communication Design programme and BA Fashion Communication students had the fantastic opportunity to meet and talk with renowned American photographer Annie Leibovitz today.
Organised by David Hendley and sponsored by UBS, the students were invited for an intimate tour of the influential photographer’s new pop-up exhibition ‘Women: New Portraits’ and Q&A where Annie spoke to them about their work and interests in photography offering advice and responses.
“[Annie] was extremely open and generous with her thoughts and time, it ran well over the allocated time. She spoke to every single student: asking them what they did, their interests in photography and gave comments and responses… The students were extremely pleased to have had this opportunity.”
– Gary Wallis, Senior Lecturer and Subject Leader in Photography, GCD programme
‘Women: New Portraits’ opens tomorrow, Saturday 16 January in Wapping Hydraulic Power Station.
