AN interactive photography exhibition that highlights the most precious thing homeless people have in their possession has been launched in the town centre.

New College student Harry Goddard decided to use his creative talents in partnership with Threshold Housing Link to feature Fine Art quality images, created and captured by homeless people.

Each art image is accompanied with a QR code, so that visitors to the exhibition can scan the code on their mobile device and instantly be connected to the artist. They will be able to hear a short personal story of what they describe is the most precious thing they have in their possession.

Harry is studying OCR Level 3 Film and TV Production at New College and has been helping produce the exhibition.

He has been working on individual edits, integrating image and audio narrative for each contribution in the photography exhibition.

He has also created a Facebook countdown to the exhibition campaign, where Facebook followers receive an individual clip each day, leading up the exhibition launch.

Michael Keenan, the business manager at Threshold said: “It’s been a delight to work with Harry, we are so impressed with his work we granted him scope to develop his creative brief here at Threshold.”

Harry worked on the brief alongside New College media lecturer Ian Szczebiot and also came up with the idea of creating a promotional video for the exhibition.

Ian said: “It has been great for Harry to gain valuable work experience with external clients while also helping a local charity organisation.”

“This gave him the chance to use the skills developed on his film and TV production course in a professional context and showcase his talents and professional attitude. I hope this type of networking will help Harry in his pursuit of a career as a freelance photographer when he graduates next year.

The exhibition will be open daily until New Year’s Eve, in The Plaza, Brunel Shopping Centre.
