Interview with Leigh Carter - Fassi 2017 Calendar
Interview with Leigh Carter, Fassi UK Ltd:What made you, as MD of Fassi UK Ltd, want to collaborate with LBSU in particular?
Right from my first contact with Daniel, I was impressed by his enthusiasm for the project. The student’s confident presentation of the initial concepts to Giovanni and myself was very professional and, importantly, gave us the feeling our calendar was in safe hands. Critically, each shoot was meticulously planned beforehand (including an extensive equipment list) and this was key to maximising the shoot time once in Italy. Once in Italy the collective working nature of the SBC approach came across strongly for me as an observer.

Interview with LBSU BA(Hons) Photography course director, Daniel AlexanderCould you tell us a little about the work of LBSU and the South Bank Collective?
I am fairly new to LSBU, starting three and a half years ago. When I started as course director I rewrote and relaunched the BA(Hons) Photography course, with a curriculum focused on developing creative, innovative and industry focused practitioners. A large part of the course’s identity is the focus on professional practice, and students getting their work out into the world, through exhibitions, publications and collaborations.
