A Private View of PLACE

Event info

Part of Photo London’s second edition, citizenM Bankside Hotel host an exhibition of photographic works by students from The Glasgow School of Art's BA(Hons) Fine Art Photography programme.

These students were invited by citizenM to submit images for a competition focusing on the idea of Place: A particular position, point, or area in space- a location. Fifteen students have been selected to showcase their masterpieces at the citizenM Bankside hotel during Photo London.

A panel of six critical judges have voted and chosen three winners and twelve others whose work will be shown at the hotel. Amongst these judges were Robin Chadha, Chief Marketing Officer for citizenM hotels; Professor Thomas Joshua Cooper;  the head of the Photography programme at the GSA, Lesley Punton,; Craig Alexander, Group Multimedia Editor Herald & Times Group; Brandei Estes, Deputy Head of Sotheby’s Photography Department, and Liesbeth Williams, curator of the KRC art collection. citizenM has invited the three winners to come to London during Photo London and to take part in studio visits, attend talks and have their portfolios reviewed. 

The winners are:

Mia Rewitz from Denmark. “My work is about places where I once belonged. Places that were a part of me and exploring how they disappear and become something different”.

Flannery O’Kafka. In her works she explores a summer spent in the Highlands and the Isle of Skye, focusing on those places where the ancient language of Gaelic is still spoken.

Pablo Llopis, who approached the concept of place from an architectural, functional, social and psychological viewpoint.
