Sophie Gorner, 24, a first year photography student, whose work was featured in the exhibition, said: “We had artwork from fine artists, photographers and graphic designers.

“Some of the work was focused around nature and peoples’ life influences. We had some that were focused on feminism and the way that people see race.

“We also had people looking at objects in a different way than how people usually look at them. We had about 40 images in total.

“We got quite a bit of positive feedback from the general public of Blackpool. Quite a few parents said their own children werethinking of applying for an art degree.”
