Lower School House Photography 2022

During the Lent term, students in the Lower School entered the annual House Photography Competition under the themes of Green Planet, Hope, Live and Human Connection. As expected, we were blown away by their imaginative and individual responses to this year’s themes.

Joint first prize went to Solomon Eames (Year 7) and Nahum Dania (Year 8). Solomon presented a poignant series which captured the shadow of a plastic bag stuck in a tree branch to represent the devastating effects of plastic pollution on our environment. Nahum’s work depicted a wonderous story of human connection which left us questioning whether they were hands reaching out or letting go of one another.

Joint second prize went to Benjamin Holman (Year 7) and Maxim Kulyk (Year 8). Ben cleverly placed an animals skull looking out onto the rugged landscape as a reminder of the fragility of life. Maxim playfully wrapped himself around a tree to illustrate to us all that we should love and look after our natural resources.

Joint third prize went to Santiago Jackson (Year 7), George Ayres (Year 7), and Lewis Henderson (Year 8). Santi superbly captured a glass bottle washed up on a beach covered in living forms from the sea. George skilfully staged moss on a small branch in a woodland to portray hope in the environment’s recovery from deforestation. Lewis delicately captured a curious chance encounter between a cat and a mouse.

A longlist of highly commended students is also featured on the showreel for their fantastic contributions to the competition.

Please do take a moment to look at our montage of imagery while we offer a huge thank you to all the Lower School students who contributed to generating such an enjoyable competition. Congratulations also goes to Spenser House who were the overall winners.
