D&G College Student Snappers Showcase Life During Lockdown

Student photographers from Dumfries and Galloway College have launched a series of online showcases documenting life under lockdown.


The ten photography students have published their work online as part of their final unit on the NC Photography course.


Steven Taylor, a lecturer in photography at the South of Scotland college, devised the project as a solution to the challenges currently faced by students living under lockdown.

Ordinarily, students would have been asked to create a series of images that showed their strengths as photographers and document them in a book or a website.

However, given the circumstances, the brief was revised to allow each student to investigate life in lockdown.


Dumfries and Galloway College has remained committed to ensuring that teaching and learning continues and innovative solutions like this from its photography staff are all part of its college-wide approach to lockdown.


The approach, led by Principal Joanna Campbell, has meant that students and staff have been able to continue working throughout the COVID-19 pandemic and ensured that as little progress as possible has been lost.


Principal Joanna Campbell said:

“These striking images and compelling visual stories are the result of the hard work and creativity of our photography students, guided by our staff, and everyone involved should be incredibly proud of themselves.

“Creative solutions like this have been at the heart of our response to COVID-19 at Dumfries and Galloway College and will help us make a positive and lasting contribution to the recovery.
“I’ve thoroughly enjoyed viewing these images and I’m positive that there is a huge online audience that will enjoy them too.
