A PHOTOGRAPHY exhibition by students at Limerick College of Further Education has gone on display in the Absolute hotel on Sir Harry’s Mall.

Second year students have exhibited a selection of their work at the college’s third annual photography exhibition.

Eoin McCarthy, head of the photography department, which has seen students win many national awards and build successful careers in photography, said there are 30 images on display from portraits, landscapes, abstract, still life, urban shots, and advertising photos. An advertising image by Martin Frank was selected as the overall winner on the night.

The college currently offers two one-year full time courses in photography. Students who successfully complete the courses receive FETAC and City & Guilds certificates in photography. On completion of a second year of study, students receive a higher professional diploma in photography.

Due to demand and the evolving profile of the photography industry, the photography department at LCFE will be introducing a new course for the academic calendar 2014/15. Lens based art will be a one-year full time programme designed to meet the needs of aspiring artists, photographers and film-makers.
