We’re very excited to introduce three new BA photojournalism photographers from the London College of Communication who will be taking part in this year’s Through the Lens project. Mentored by professional photographer Briony Campbell, the photographers will be working with us to capture the life of the London Sinfonietta behind the scenes – in rehearsal, performance and backstage.
Our three photographers this year are Aylin Elci, Clelia Carbonari and Tamara Craiu. Meet the photographers below and check out their first shoot at our rehearsal of Fausto Romitelli’s An Index of Metals on Wednesday 8 October in our new gallery.
I’m 21 years old, both my parents are Turkish and I was born and brought up in Switzerland hence identifying with both cultures. I am currently an undergraduate photojournalism student at the London College of Communication, part of the University of the Arts London. My interests range from development issues to street art and when taking photographs I try to document subjects as creatively as possible while staying as true as possible to them.
Tamara Craiu is a passionate budding photographer with a keen interest in live music. She was born and bred in Singapore, with Romanian and Polish ancestry and a ‘personal culture’ that is a blend of Jewish, Latin, Asian and everything else you can find at an international school. Currently she lives in London and is pursuing a BA in Photojournalism at the London College of Communication. She is always trying to adapt and learn new skills and applying them to further her potential. As an independent photographer, she understands the importance of initiative and passion, and brings these qualities to everything she does professionally or otherwise.
I am an Italian photographer based in London. Currently finishing my BA in Photojournalism at the London College of Communication. My main focus is street photography, I like to walk around and capture the relationship between people and what surrounds them. However, I want to experiment as much as possible and keep my mind open for any new opportunity.
