Bradford College photographic and graphic students have started work on a project responding to the cemetery, exploring the different aspects of the site through photography and graphics.
Working with recently installed Registrar to Undercliffe Cemetery, and former picture editor Andy Manning the collaborative project will re-position the 166-year old Victorian site celebrating its heritage and importance to the city.
Photography Tutor Andy Vains said “When the opportunity was offered, we jumped at it”
The Photo and Graphics students were introduced to the sites hidden gems by Andrew Barker Deputy Coordinator, who gave an insight into some of Undercliffe’s eclectic and magnificent tombs, mausoleums and burial plots. Both groups took the initial theme of ‘Occupations’ as an initial approach from which to investigate the site.
Andy Manning said “I’m very excited to see the cemetery through the different eyes. The site is visually stunning, and I hope that the students can capture, not only, the grandeur and scale of the monuments, but also bring out some of the small points of detail, which have a beauty and importance of their own”
The students work will be curated into an exhibition which will open in September. about the collaborative project
