Praise for Petersfield photography student as exhibition opens

By Post in Events

UGANDAN life with all its colour, chaos and character has been portrayed by a Petersfield photography student.

And 27 stunning images taken by Henry Green (14) on a two week trip he made there with the Queen Elizabeth Country Park twinning project are on public display at his school, The Petersfield School.

‘Uganda the Country’ can be viewed in The Studio at The Petersfield School (TPS) on Saturday, February 18, from 10am to 3pm.

Henry, who is taking GCSE photography, is very proud to have an exhibition there and he has already had some very positive feedback on his portraits, street scenes and wildlife.

“It’s very impressive,” said TPS’s head of visual arts Gary Leeson. “Henry has always had an aptitude for photography. You have to have quite a body of work to fill this kind of space.”

Also impressed with the photographs was the Royal Society of Photography, contacted by Gary. And he is waiting to hear back from National Geographic.

Members of Petersfield Photographic Society will be attending the exhibition.

Of all the photos, two are Henry’s favourites. One is the profile head of a Ugandan boy, used on the promotion flyers, who Henry found working in a kitchen using banana skins as oven gloves. And the other is of a close up elephant taken from the sunroof of a Land Cruiser on Safari.
