FIRST year photography students at Limerick College of Further Education have unveiled their 12th annual exhibition in the Absolute Hotel.

Many of the images feature stunning shots from Italy, which was the destination for this year’s photography department tour, where teachers and learners had the opportunity to visit various towns and cities.

As in previous years, the photography exhibition will run at the Absolute Hotel for the entire year. Members of the public interested in purchasing any of the works can do so by contacting the relevant learners directly. Previous LCFE photography exhibitions at the venue have always been highly successful.

Commenting on this year’s showcase, Eoin McCarthy, LCFE Photography Department, said: “Staging an exhibition like this requires a huge commitment on the part of the learners and the teaching staff at the college. We are really looking forward to giving members of the public an all year opportunity to view the calibre of work produced by the first year LCFE photographic learners, who only began to study photography full time in September 2013.”

Limerick College of Further Education is currently accepting enrolments for courses commencing in September next. The photography department currently runs two, one-year, full time programmes.

Photography graduates from the school are regularly in the news, following repeated nominations at the national student media awards, and having gone on to win major awards thereafter.

This year, Polish student Kamila Decyk was one of six photographers nominated for student photographer of the year, while fellow LCFE student Damien Browne was been shortlisted for news photographer of the year.
