The sixth edition of the leading photography event takes place at Somerset House in London from 9–12 September, and showcases work from over 80 galleries from 15 countries, as well as the Graduates Salon section in which Jess and Joel's work is being shown. Graduates were put forward for the exhibition by their institutions.
Jess is exhibiting a self-portrait entitled Saturating And Sinking Deeper, created as part of a wider series Calamities-Plastic and Fauna that aims to spark conversations around the use of microplastics and their impact on the environment. Her image was also chosen by Photo London to promote the Graduates Salon.
Joel's project Cut Of The Land focuses on scenes captured during lockdown around the London suburb of Southall and the waterways of the Limehouse Basin exploring different aspects of human impact on the landscape.
Holly Birtles, Lecturer in Photography in the School of Art and Media, said: “I selected the projects by Jess O’Neill and Joel Goldstein, as each project represents important contemporary concepts, from pressing environmental emergencies to the depiction of shifting suburban landscapes.
