We've been very impressed by this years recent photography graduates and the efforts they've put into promoting their final degree shows. So this months Culture Corner is dedicated to them. We've seen well executed websites and beautifully designed invites, and even got a bottle of wine disguised as an invite from the Bournemouth BA Commercial Photography graduates.
