Some of the camera obscuras that the students made in Silverburn Park.

They were shown how to construct their cameras and then encouraged to personalise them using a variety of materials, drawing on their current selves as inspiration, and juxtaposing these with aspirations and hopes for their future.

The students’ camera obscuras were featured in a pop-up exhibition at Silverburn Park in Leven and will be on display across Fife College campuses over the next few months.
