UCS Waterfront photographic art auction proves a great success
An auction of donated photographic art prints - some by famous photographers - raised £3,649 at the Waterfron Gallery at UCS in Ipswich last week.
The fundraising event was put together by 22 UCS fine art photography students to raise money to present two end-of-the-year degree shows.
The exhibitions will be presented to the public in Ipswich and also in East London.
The auction includes works donated by students, lecturers and famous supporters including: Bernhard Fuchs, Stephen Gill, David Bate, Andreas Schmidt, John Free, Eamonn McCabe, Steve MacLeod, Bill Jackson, Antony Burrill amongst others
Photographic student Amanda Hook said:“ We were really honoured to have such supporters and would like to say a big thank you. We are hoping you could help us to market this and show everyone. We raised a grand total of £3,649 - incredible.
“We also ran an indiegogo campaign from which we made a video and perks that people could buy to help support us, this raised £1,165.

“So thanks to everyones great support we are able to exhibit our work - (22 students from UCS) one in Ipswich, Suffolk (between May 23 and June 12) and one at the Hoxton Arches gallery, East London (June 13 to June 19), both of which will be entirely funded by ourselves.
“The Ipswich show will also form part of the much-anticipated PhotoEast festival (www.photoeast.co.uk) thus increasing audience numbers for our work still further.”
