Photographic Education: An Interview With James Arthur Allen

Photographic Education is an interview series from Loupe. Through conversations with successful graduates, we discuss why photographic education works, how to get the most out of it, and where it can improve. Each graduate shares their advice for current students, and some answer a guest question from a past tutor. The series aims to be a useful resource for students and educators alike, and promotes work from the most encouraging new photographers.

Issue 9 Interview: Alex Colley

Interview by Lucas Birtles

Alex Colley, a final year student at the University of South Wales, has already developed a distinctive creative voice.
