In the Magenta Foundation’s tenth anniversary ‘Flash Forward’ thirty of the hundred selected emerging UK photographers are LCC Alumni or current students.

Established in 2004, The Magenta Foundation is a non-profit charitable arts publishing house based in Canada. Magenta was created to organize promotional opportunities for artists, in an international context, through circulated exhibitions and publications. Magenta works with respected individuals and international organizations to help increase recognition for artists while uniting the global photography community.

Jocelyn Allen, a current LCC MA Photography student was a Flash Forward winner in 2012 for a project about her family called ‘One Is Not Like The Other’. Jocelyn’s work is predominately self-portraiture and she is currently working on two projects based on ideas of hiding and revealing.

Corinne Silva, who recently completed her AHRC funded PhD at LCC in December, is now a Post-Doctoral Research Fellow with the Photography and the Archive Research Centre (PARC), also based at LCC.

Corinne was a Flash Forward winner in 2010 and 2011. Her latest ambitious photography project is based in the Mediterranean and is called ‘Rocks and Fortresses’. She has recently shown her work in London and the Middle-East.
