An unused space at Reigate station has been reimagined as a picture gallery
Reigate School of Art – Journeys
Station Staff, Management and SCRP joined together install the Reigate School of Art’s photographic display . The students who provided the artwork, were unable to attend due to unexpected illness so armed with a supply of velcro we set about reclaiming a previously unused space for the enjoyment of the public and station users.
Many of you will remember a year ago, Reigate School of Art’s photography students provided a delightful display that was installed within the underpass at the station. The 2022/23 Year 1 students of the school have kindly shared their latest project to provide an exciting display titled ‘Journeys’
“This project has been created by Year 1 from Reigate School of Art. aged 16-18 Students on Level 3 Creative Media Production used a digital camera to capture a series of images which represent a place, location or the process of travelling.
Each young learner was invited to explore the theme in your own individual way, and demonstrated practical camera skills and creativity, as well as finding out about their chosen locations. For example – logistics, maps, train timetables, MET office weather reports, sunset-sunrise times.
Working on location is an essential skill, which enables the photographer to observe their surroundings, communicate personal ideas, and fulfil assignment tasks. Their images all communicate individual ideas of the theme Journeys. The subjects photographed range from street photography, public transport, commercial vehicles, local places, personal journeys in mental health, studies of light, the journey of a harp being made, daily walks, road signs and environmental issues.”
Photographed in Redhill, Reigate, Croydon, West Sussex and surrounding areas.
