Photograd turns 1!

Photograd made it to a year old this week and celebrated with an exhibition at the University of Suffolk. The show has been home to work by some of the featured photographers on the platform in the last year, but sadly it has to be taken down this week. Many of the prints are being donated to the universities final year photography group who are currently fundraising for their two final shows. We really hope the donated images can help them on their way.

See the featured graduates who have helped us celebrate alongside some installation shots of the exhibition here.

We know that some of you were able to visit Ipswich and see the exhibition for yourselves. We've created an online version of the catalogue for those who couldn't make a visit. You can find it here.
