Jo Lauren has won in the “things” category at the AOP Awards in London for her atmospheric image of a dead bird, pictured.

James Smith, BA Photography Course Leader, said being selected three years in a row was a “fantastic achievement”.

“Even more impressive is that she won the overall prize when she was in her first year and best in category ‘things’ this year,” said James. “Inclusion in any photographic awards is a great addition to a photographer’s folio and a talking point when showing work to potential clients.”

Through her final year, Jo has been developing her professional practice and has assisted world-renowned photographers such as Julia Fullerton-Batten.

“Jo has been an exemplary student and over the three years of the course has worked relentlessly to develop her unique approach to image making,” James said.

“Throughout the final year of her studies she has worked thematically, exploring her ideas and emotions around the place she lives.”
