Business to Arts and financial services law firm, Walkers, joined Irish photographer Kate Nolan and transition year students at CBS Westland Row to celebrate the completion of the first year of the Walkers Photographer in Residence project. The students’ project work was exhibited at the Walkers offices alongside Walkers staff photography, showcasing the development of their photographic skills together.

Kate’s residency included a series of workshops, where Kate introduced documentary photography to CBS Westland Row transition year students through ‘story walks’ of the Docklands. These workshops were led by the students themselves, who selected the locations to be photographed. Each week students explored a different theme, visually strategising their stories through photographic walks of the Docklands. On these walks, students learned new technical skills and aesthetic decisions. The images created were brought back to the classroom to discuss and combine with text.

The exciting venture marks the first time that a business in Ireland has engaged a Photographer-in-Residence programme with Business to Arts and Dublin City Council. The residency supports Business to Arts’ wide programme of activity, which develops quality arts experiences for artists, businesses, communities.

Commenting on the milestone, Andrew Hetherington, Chief Executive of Business to Arts said:

This collaboration between Kate Nolan, the students of CBS Westland Row and Walkers staff has enabled the students and staff involved to develop their photographic and creative skills while documenting life within the Docklands area. We have enjoyed watching the student’s photographic work evolve, capturing the essence of life in the Docklands and look forward to seeing how the Walkers Photographer-in-Residence evolves in the future.”

Garry Ferguson, Managing Partner at Walkers said:

“We were delighted to be part of this project not just as sponsors but as active participants.  The artistic output of the students was impressive and we are looking forward to having it on display on the walls of our new office, The Exchange IFSC, for years to come.”
