AboutThe Photographers' Gallery presents FreshFaced+WildEyed 2013, its annual exhibition showcasing the quality and breadth of graduates' practices from photographic courses across the UK. The exhibition aims to draw attention to innovative new talents from a range of photographic fields and is dedicated to recognising and nurturing new talents. Now in its sixth year, FreshFaced+WildEyed 2013 will continue offering a small group of finalists further development opportunities through the Gallery's mentorship scheme. For the first time this year the exhibition will incorporate The Wall, the centrepiece of the Gallery's digital programme, as part of the display.
Twenty-two recent graduates have been selected from an open submission of over 300 applicants. They were chosen by a judging panel of photography experts: Eileen Perrier, artist and lecturer; Zoe Pilger, art critic for The Independent and winner of the 2011 Frieze Writer's Prize; Niru Ratnam, Head of Gallery Development, Art13 London and Brett Rogers, Director, The Photographers' Gallery.
The finalists have all graduated in the past year from BA and MA visual arts courses across the UK with photography and digital media forming the main component of their practice.
