LCFE lens itself to photography

THIS year’s exhibition of photography by students at Limerick College of Further Education will have a decidedly North African flavour after a recent trip to Morocco.

THIS year’s exhibition of photography by students at Limerick College of Further Education will have a decidedly North African flavour after a recent trip to Morocco.

As well as strking images such as the one captured above by Leanne McCarthy, this year’s exhibition will feature work from the various towns and cities of the North African kingdom after the recent trip there by lecturuers and students at the Mulgrave Street College.

This is the ninth annual photography exhibition being run by the Limerick College of Further Education. One of the highlights of the year, it opens this Wednesday night, March 16, at the South Court Hotel.

Members of the public interested in purchasing any of the works can do so on the opening night or by contacting the relevant learners directly. Previous LCFE photography exhibitions at the same hotel venue have been highly successful.

Commenting on the forthcoming showcase, Eoin McCarthy, LCFE photography department, said: “staging an exhibition like this requires a huge commitment on the part of learners and the teaching staff at the College. We are really looking forward to giving members of the public an opportunity to view the calibre of work produced by LCFE photographic learners in this open setting.”

Limerick College of Further Education is currently accepting enrolments for courses commencing in September 2011.

The photography department at LCFE currently runs two full-time one-year courses. Learners who successfully complete these courses receive FETAC Level 5 and Level 6 awards in photography. Learners can go on to receive a higher professional diploma in photography. Both courses are designed to enable learners to develop an understanding of the variety of roles and skills undertaken throughout the photographic industry.

The exhibition opens at the South Court this Wednesday at 7.30pm and runs for the remainder of the year.
