Join OCA tutor Robert Enoch on the 18 March in London.

We will visit Roger Mayne and also see the Deutsche Börse Photography Foundation Prize 2017 at the Photographers Gallery.

This major exhibition is the first since 1999 to show the iconic work of British photographer Roger Mayne (1929-2014).

It includes his pioneering photographs of 1950s and early 1960s community life in London’s Southam Street. Mayne’s humanistic approach has influenced subsequent generations of photographers, and made a significant contribution to post war British photography.

The artists shortlisted for the Deutsche Börse Photography Foundation Prize 2017 are Sophie Calle, Dana Lixenberg, Awoiska van der Molen, and Taiyo Onorato and Nico Krebs.

We are also inviting students to bring along a piece of work for a group crit/discussion.This is a mixed show, so it could be anything you are most pleased with or want to share with other students. We can then bridge the work we have seen to yours.

For study events that require a ticket, there is a non refundable fee of £10 to pay and your confirmation email will instruct you on how to do this.

    Thanks for organising this. And thanks Robert for leading the crits today—a very worthwhile exercise. Now, just waiting to hear the result of the Deutsche Borse competition. My money is on Sophie Calle.

    Thanks Robert for a great day, I enjoyed speaking to fellow students and seeing some of the other students work. I found the visit interesting, it was good to see another approach on how photography can change you views, great day. Well worth the 6 hour round trip.
