New Wave 12: North East Photography Network

Interview commissioned for Source Photographic Review

Continuing my tour of the North I set off to Sunderland where the revamped university campus provides a home for the Northern Centre of Photography. From within a stand-alone stone-clad building, incongruous against its shiny counterparts, Carol McKay and Amanda Ritson oversee the activities of the North East Photography Network. Inside, the centre’s white corridors gleam and students hurry between darkrooms housing neat rows of enlargers. Despite the audible buzz of activity it’s clear how a photography degree can feel a little removed from the world outside.
