Ghost House II.2 selected for Royal West of England Academy Open Photography 2011

My photograph Ghost House II.2 has been selected for the Royal West of England Academy Open Photography 2011 (http://www.rwa.org.uk/curpro.htm).

I’m particularly happy to go back there because I was selected for their very first Open Photography exhibition in 2008, when I had no exhibiting experience and no formal art qualification. I think it is good and too rare that a prestigious gallery is brave enough to give their chance to unknown photographers and to select work purely on the quality of the picture, not the applicant’s CV.

I’m catching up on my blog to make sure everything I’ve done during the MA Unit 1 is included in it.

In October 2010, the Ghost House video was shown at Electrofringe festival, a Festival of electronic arts and culture, Newcastle, Australia. It was in the Electroprojections program, that showed single-channel video works, sourced from an international open call.

See the Ghost House video on youtube.
