'I used to be a photography student' show

Posted in: Events

This exhibition shows the work of past City Lit students who have completed one of our photography courses in the last 5 years. We invited our diverse and talented alumni to return to City Lit with a submission of what they have been up to since completing their course or courses with us. Courses that have been completed range from the yearlong City Lit photography course, to shorter Photographing people classes. We are infinitely proud of the work they have gone on to do since completion; this exhibition is a testament to the commitment, passion and talent of our learners. City Lit would like to thank all of the tutors who have worked tirelessly to support their learners to achieve such accomplished goals.
