Our Creative Media students invite you to discover Epsom and Ewell ‘Then & Now’ through a series of stunning experimental photographic images which are on display at Epsom Library.
The photographic exhibition, ‘Then & Now’ is an expression of our students’ understanding of the past, present and future of the borough and has been created in collaboration with Epsom & Ewell Borough Council, the archives at Bourne Hall Museum and the Libraries of Surrey.
Louise Gaskin, Head of Department for Creative Media Studies said, “This exhibition has encouraged our Level 3 Creative Media students to explore new ways of thinking with experimental photography. Using their imagination and creativity with techniques such as double exposure and mixed media, they have created eye-catching visual expressions of Epsom and Ewell’s past and future.”
“The opportunity to work with Bourne Hall Museum archives and the Libraries of Surrey have also given our students first-hand experience of working to a professional brief with real world clients, essential skills that will help them in their future careers.”
This collaborative project has been funded by Epsom & Ewell Borough Council, through the UK Government's 'Levelling Up' initiative. The project sits within the Council's Arts, Culture and Heritage strategy which seeks to nurture local artistic talent and increase access to our borough's colourful historical past through creative outputs.
Nescot's Principal and CEO Julie Kapsalis said, “It is a proud moment for our students to see their work publicly displayed in a prestigious venue. Their creations have been inspired by the borough’s fascinating history and heritage. Thanks to Epsom & Ewell Borough Council, Bourne Hall Museum and the Libraries of Surrey for this collaborative project which is a fantastic showcase of our students’ local involvement.”
Speaking about ‘Then & Now’ one of our Creative Media students said, “It’s amazing the little changes you can find when putting old pictures side by side with each other. Epsom and Ewell has a rich history and I’m excited to share it with others.”
