Creativity, artistic expression and individuality cannot be locked down. Covid-19 has forced a revolution in the art world and within Photography. Never have the skills of a photographer been more in demand, more of us than ever are viewing our world through online images. On the 23rd of March 2020, the UK went into lockdown, the usual activity and buzz of our busy photography department ceased and rapidly changed to an online only experience.

Communication with our university colleagues, friends and students now takes place through a screen; we are learning, talking and laughing through technology. Photographic challenges, questions and problems are being embraced. How do you make a portrait of a person you have never met while in isolation? How do you produce a convincing product shot outside of the studio? These challenges have been met by our students through innovation, abundant creativity and resilience.

Unlocked, celebrates the talents and successes of the final year students on the BA (Hons) Photography course at The University of Bolton.
The final degree show is testament to the flexibility and strength of community between staff and students, supporting and encouraging each other to produce this most unusual of degree shows.

Projects range from documentary to fine art photography. The Degree show of 2020 will never be forgotten, it brings together the student achievements - of not only the last few months, but of the three years they have worked towards their degrees.

To our students we wish you every happiness and success in your future pursuits. Thank you for taking us with you on your journey, we will miss you all!
