This season, for the fourth consecutive year, we are working with emerging photographers from the Photojournalism and Documentary Photography course at London College of Communication (UAL). Each of the student photographers will be mentored by Briony Campbell, as they attend rehearsals throughout the London Sinfonietta season and document the ensemble in their creative working environment, capturing special moments between the players and the music.
On Friday 18 November, we were thrilled to welcome each of them to their first session of the season with us, at our general rehearsal with Norwegian saxophonist Marius Neset and his quartet in the beautiful LSO St Luke’s at Old Street. Have a look below at a selection of their work from the rehearsal.
Meet the photographers:
Domizia Salusest is an Italian photographer based in London. As a storyteller, she uses her camera as her passport to discover stories and people. She participated in ECCE HOMO for Caritas, a photographic book and exhibition project for an Italian NGO. Here, she had the opportunity to photograph different aspects of the integration process for women that came from war-torn countries in Italy as political refugees. This project challenged her way of understanding reality and strongly influenced her later works. Today, her new challenge concerns the effects of the unpredictable event of “Brexit” on the new generation.
Claudia Greco was born in 1996 in Milan, Italy. She is focused on social and political themes such as the development and change of political parties around the European Union, particularly in response to the EU referendum in the United Kingdom.
She travels around Italy and Britain taking photos, and aims to expand her project to many other countries around the EU in the next few years.
Xingkun Yang is an international student studying photojournalism at the London College of Communication.
Xingkun sees photography as an extension of his thoughts and views and is really looking forward to documenting the London Sinfonietta through his own eyes this season.
