What drew you to photography and why did you decide to study it?
I fell into photography whilst studying an Art Foundation Diploma. I had originally planned on studying Graphic Design, but with the encouragement from a tutor, ended up on the photography pathway.
Spectrum is proud to be sponsoring the beautiful body of work: Pierdom by Simon Roberts.

February saw the opening of Oneself as Another at The Royal West of England Academy in collaboration with bo.lee projects.
The exhibition features Sanctae, a major new work by Ione Rucquoi which provides the inspiration and centrepiece for the exhibition.
This is the first opportunity to see this new exhibition, which through a large body of work explores a personal view of identity, class, British industry and Chris Harrison’s relationship with his father.
Through photography, Time and Remains – Reflections on the Palestinian Landscape brings together two distinct stories witnessed within the landscape of Israel/Palestine. The first section of the exhibition documents the traces of the now historical Palestinian presence in much of Israel’s landscape, and references the destruction and expulsion of the 1948 war that established the state of Israel.
