FUNCTION III

The Urban Landscape as Photographic Panorama

 

‘The Urban Landscape’ is the theme for this year’s project. Now in its third year, the Barber Institute’s photographic competition Function III, in collaboration with Birmingham Institute of Art and Design (BIAD), showcases the best young, creative talent.

The theme also incorporates our exciting new exhibition Cityscapes: Panoramic Views on Coins and Medals, where undergraduate students from BIAD’s degree in Visual Communication take inspiration from the exquisite designs on 16th – 18th century European coins and medals to create much larger, photographic panoramic views of Birmingham.

Winner and runner-up

Overall Winner – Aasima Pathan (for her works ‘Canals and Towers’ & ‘Eastside’)

Second Place and Peoples Choice Winner - Sylwia Kuzak (for her work  ‘Urban Stream Flow’)

Finalists

Jenny Harrison, Joseph Reiner, Scarlett Shellis & Michelle Zikis
