Continuing an ongoing support of emerging talent, this edition of Aesthetica marks the fifth anniversary of Next Generation, an annual collaboration with London College of Communication that celebrates the work of recent graduates. The following pages highlight those shaping the industry through considered compositions and balanced series. Connected by their intimate subject matter – open doorways, shafts of light, underwater bodies and deserted landscapes – the images provide an arena for wider reflection, offering a glimpse into worlds passing by. Desolation and serenity pervade natural settings, whilst interior and exterior spaces collide. Expanding its culture of photographic education, this autumn LCC will collaborate with The Photographers’ Gallery, London, on the delivery of a new ten-week public programme on photography and curation. www.arts.ac.uk/lcc.
