Photography students at Central Bedfordshire College are embarking on an exciting new project which will capture the construction of the new build at the Dunstable Campus and provide a real insight into the building for future generations.
The students who are all studying on the second year of the Level 3 Photography course have been split into groups, with each being tasked to record the project with a different focus, including the build as it progresses, personnel, abstract, portraiture and close-up details. The project forms part of their 'Personal Professional Development' unit and will culminate in a final exhibition in September 2015, when the new building opens. Selected images will also be used throughout the project to update key stakeholders on the progress of the project.
The £15 million college development is at the Kingsway campus in the heart of Dunstable, and when it launches in September 2015 will bring a host of new facilities to the college and the wider community. As well as exciting state-of-the-art learning environments, there will also be a fully operational hair and beauty salons, as well as a new restaurant. These commercial elements will enable students to use the skills they have learnt in a real working environment.
Ali Hadawi CBE, Principal of Central Bedfordshire College, commented, "This is a significant project for the college and the Dunstable community so it is important that students are involved as much as possible, utilising the skills they have learnt through their studies".
Danny Roberts, Project Manager for Ashe, added, "This construction project is ideally located to present an opportunity for real 'hands on' interaction with the college. We were duly impressed by the enthusiasm of the photography students and worked alongside the college to ensure this exciting proposal became a reality. We are looking forward to what they produce over the coming months".
