Picture preview - Raw Energy: YPA Mentoring 2011
First look at young photographers' exhibition
Sunday 18 March 2012
A group of young photographers mentored by the Independent on Sunday's picture editor are exhibiting their work for the first time this week.
The Young Photographers' Alliance (YPA) arts charity's mentoring programme, which links young, emerging photographers between the ages of 18 and 29 with established photographers and picture editors, presents its 'Raw Energy: YPA Mentoring 2011' exhibition at Hoxton Gallery, London on 20 March.
For the 2011 programme IoS picture editor Sophie Batterbury and reportage photographer Justin Sutcliffe, whose work includes extensive contributions to the paper, were the mentors for the team in London, while a second team in Glasgow was headed by picture editor Elaine Livingstone of Opus Media and photographer Claire Stuart.
The young photographers were given two months to deliver their final projects - on the theme of 'energy' - and this week's show features an image each from each of the 19 mentees, as well as a few of the best images from the scheme's US counterpart.
"Raw Energy: YPA Mentoring 2011" will run at the Hoxton Gallery, London, from 20-22 March. The private view is on Tuesday 20 from 6-9pm. The gallery will be open to the public from 2-7pm on the 21st and 22nd.
