Chetham’s is proud to have developed strong links with Bolton University’s MA Photography course, led by a good friend of the Library, Ian Beesley. For the last couple of years, the students have spent part of their studies at Chetham’s, looking at early book illustration and the use of narrative. As part of their final presentation, the students are required to produce a photobook of their work, and the best is chosen by the Library to receive a special award. The judging process is currently underway, and in no particular order this year’s shortlist is displayed below. The award will be presented at the launch of Voices, the exhibition of students’ work to be shown at the People’s History Museum from January 15th.
