THE work of pho­tog­ra­phy stu­dents at Claren­don Sixth Form Col­lege is be­ing ex­hib­ited at Manch­ester Mu­seum af­ter they were tasked with cre­at­ing a travel themed col­lec­tion.

Stu­dents were asked to pro­duce a col­lec­tion of pho­to­graphs to be dis­played in an ex­hi­bi­tion at the mu­seum ded­i­cated to the theme of ‘jour­neys’, with fam­i­lies as the in­tended au­di­ence.

To find out more about the mu­seum and to con­duct re­search into the theme of the ex­hi­bi­tion, the stu­dents were taken on a be­hind-the-scenes tour of the arche­ol­ogy and an­thro­pol­ogy de­part­ments by their cu­ra­tors.

Cather­ine Lumb, sec­ondary and post-16 learn­ing co­or­di­na­tor (hu­man­i­ties) at Manch­ester Mu­seum, also vis­ited the col­lege to help the stu­dents de­velop their work and to cre­ate their fi­nal pieces be­fore be­ing dis­played.

Manch­ester Mu­seum dis­plays works of ar­chae­ol­ogy, an­thro­pol­ogy and nat­u­ral his­tory and is the largest univer­sity mu­seum in the UK. They reg­u­larly con­duct out­reach pro­grammes with schools and col­leges to en­gage young peo­ple in these ar­eas.

The stu­dents work will be on dis­play un­til July 2018 and can be seen in ‘The Study’ area the mu­seum.

Cather­ine, said: “It is a real plea­sure to work with Claren­don Sixth Form Col­lege stu­dents as they are ded­i­cated, hard­work­ing young peo­ple. The qual­ity of work pro­duced im­proves year on year and it’s a fan­tas­tic op­por­tu­nity to demon­strate the work we do with schools and col­leges.”
