Ben's "A" Level Photograpy..

This morning, Mick and I went up to the Boy's School, to see Ben's "A" Level Photography work.
The examiners/assessor's have already seen the work and today was the turn of Family and Friends.
The poster on the door advertising the open day, was made from one of Ben's pictures.
I have to say that all the Students, have worked really hard and there was some absolutely wonderful work on show. I hope they all get the grades that they are hoping for, especially those that need the points for University.
A special thank you, to their Teacher & Friend Amelia, who Ben tells me begs, steals and borrows to get her students through their exams, (the Photography department is sorely under funded) and gives up a lot of her own time for the students. She was in School until 6.30pm last night with one of the assessors and she mounted every single photograph that was on display.
The huge black poster that Ben did, is a take on the saying by Friedrich Nietzsche ~ If you stare into the Abyss long enough the Abyss stares back a you. Unfortunately, because its Gloss and reflects the light, I couldn't get a good picture of it. But if you stand directly in front of it, and concentrate you can see quite a few eyes staring back out at you. I did try to upload the original picture from Ben's memory stick, but blogger didn't like it, I think its too big a file. Ben said that he will compress the file, so that I can upload it later!.
If you click on the pictures, they should come up bigger.
I'll be back later with some more pictures, taken by the other Students and Ben's friends.

Debbie, tell Ben congrats for me. Those are outstanding. My favorite is the very last one. I have always liked the quotation and he illustrated it exactly right!

My faves are the fuzzy pics 8 down from the top.
Hope all the students get the grade they need.
I tried staring into the abyss, but my wonky eye kept going sideways and so lost my vision. Wish i didn't have the wonky one, lol. Maybe i will see what happens when you upload from Ben.
I love dedicated teachers like this. Funnily eneough not all teachers are so, but the ones that are are total treasures.
Patrick does photoography too and so will show him these when he is home. Luckily its an art college and they chuck money into this department. God help him if it wasn't.
Hope you had a nice afternoon out too.
