Epson is to sponsor Cambridge Faces, the first large photographic project presented by Queens' College Art Society, Cambridge. The project is a photographic tribute to English icons through portraiture. Six talented young photographers from Cambridge University have chosen to focus on one aspect of English heritage and will be presenting their creative interpretations of the theme in the exhibition.
The photographs will be presented at two main events in March: "Faces at the Fitz: A Photographic Tribute to English Icons" is an invitation only Inaugural Gala on 12th March and the first instalment of the photographic project. "Faces at the Union: A Photographic Tribute to English Icons" is the second and last instalment of the project and is a free entry, open to the public, exhibition on 14 and 15 March. All portraits will be for sale with profits divided between two selected charities - the Affinity Project and Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research.
Nick White, manager of pro-graphics at Epson said: "We are delighted to be able to support Cambridge Faces and The Queens’ College Art Society in what promises to be a very exciting event. Supporting emerging talent in the photographic and fine art field is something that is important to us and we would like to wish all the students taking part in the project the best of luck."
Thurstan Redding, student, photographer and project coordinator added: "We are very excited about the project and so thankful to Epson for their ongoing support of fresh emerging talent, and to the entire student body here, as well as Cambridge Arts."
