Good to see another one of duckrabbit’s students getting their work shown on the BBC.
Damian Drohan is one of the most committed photographers I’ve had the pleasure of working with. I’ve been in awe of the way he has been seeking out Irish World War Two veterans to both photograph and record their stories.
The photofilm on the BBC website focuses on collector Paddy Bassett who spends his time cataloguing and “playing” with his collection of military and other memorabilia.
This is what Damian has to say about duckrabbit’s training:
‘The training that Duckrabbit provided to us as part of our MA Photojournalism & Documentary Photography at LCC, helped hugely in allowing me to engage with photofilms. Technically and aesthetically the workshops were very insightful. Duckrabbit smoothed the learning curve substantially and I would like to say a big thanks to Ben and David, great trainers great supporters of “engaged” photojournalism and documentary work, and a thorn in the backsides of the elite and the old guard.
Sweet, thanks for that Damian. It means a lot.
