It’s not every day a Turner Prize nominated artist visits the Academy, but that’s what happened at Millbrook! Richard Billingham, a rising star of the photographic  world, came to the Academy, chatted with art and design students about his career.

Mrs Lane, Head of Art, said: “It was very inspirational for the students. He went into his photography work from when he started his foundation course and how he progressed as an artist. The students found it very interesting as a lot of his work is unique and personal.”

Students at Millbrook are currently looking into photography so it was a great opportunity for them to learn about some of the skills needed.
