"The class of 2020 will be remembered as the class that wouldn’t be beaten. After the initial shock of lockdown and then the realisation that their final major projects would not be used for final grade assessment... they were still determined to push on. A makeshift bathroom darkroom, a homemade studio, self portraiture, FaceTime photography and imaginative use of the daily lockdown walk, helps to demonstrate their collective ability to adjust, adapt and creatively support each other. Their defiance certainly paid off... producing some truly outstanding work. The class of 2020 will be a tough act to follow."
