Check out Luke Evans’ talk at our photo-themed Nicer Tuesdays

At last month’s photo-themed Nicer Tuesdays we were joined by Luke Evans, a photographer, designer and one of our 2014 Graduates. Luke gave us a funny and honest account of three of his projects, from swallowing photographic film and creating landscapes on his kitchen table to printing with 400,000 volts. Outlining the fun and the challenges of working on what he called “super low-budget stuff,” his talk confirmed the importance of following through with ideas, however daft they may initially seem. “There were tonnes and tonnes of failures,” he admitted.

Luke also talked about gaining success at such a young age; when the Saatchi Gallery brought some of his work his mum thought (and apparently still thinks) it was Versace.
