Fassi 2017 Calendar
With so much creative input invested in the calendar, 7 years ago it evolved into something more than just that; it became the Fassi Crane Art Project.
Interview with Leigh Carter
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.
LSBU - London South Bank University
The work in this calendar has been created collaboratively by students studying the BA(Hons) Photography degree at London South Bank University.
The degree course is based in the centre of London and is focused on the development of creatively innovative, industry focused and professional photographers. The course is led by Daniel Alexander, a photographer and educator.
Interview with Daniel Alexander
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.
