We are pleased to announce, Just the two of us, 2018, by student photographer Louis Painter, will be exhibited at the John Lewis Community Hub, Grand Central, Birmingham, 31 May – 26 June 2018.

Taken in a stream, while wandering the parks; stumbling across too many trolleys in lakes for a normal park to have, in my opinion. This says something about the lack of care people have for the environment and the rising concern about pollution.

This photograph is from a project linking to the theme of “globalisation”. I chose to go along the path of global pollution, since most countries like China, the U.S.A or the UK, have very high pollution that could easily be lowered with more acknowledgement and action.

My favourite thing about photography is the way it can open you up to small things you can miss on a daily basis when you aren’t looking. This photograph was taken because it was across a bridge that people would usually walk across looking down at their phones, not looking over at the trolleys in streams.

Join us at the John Lewis Community Hub, Grand Central, Birmingham, from 31 May to 26 June, to view our exhibition, Reclaiming Our Future.  Submissions from regional students and young people featured in this exhibition, showcase developing artistic and technical skills.
