April 2017 19 year old Beth is currently on the Totnes Art Foundation course. Last month, she wrote and asked if she could visit Arts Lab to support her final project, the photographs for which are shown below. “I have begun to capture creatives in their working environment: studios, home, school, wherever they choose,” says Beth. “Working with Sara and talking to her about the development of Arts Lab has helped me to understand where I want to take my own interests. What I like about the Lab is how creativity is encouraged to thrive under any circumstance and amongst all ages. I really hope to continue working with this exciting enterprise.”
Earlier this week, Arts Lab came across another great study in photographs, not of artists, but of ‘London Youth’ by Julian Mahrlein – “The portraits, shot on the streets with natural light, reveal a tender side to a generation so often misrepresented and who face a world in profound flux,” says Mahrlein, whose work has just been published.
