MA Commercial Photography students have been talking to AUB after their MA Show in the Northlight Studios. Here Jason Dimmock discusses his work

Can you tell us a bit about your work?

At the beginning of the MA I wanted to focus on an area of work which would lead to professional success, so I was photographing celebrities.

It wasn’t purely for that, though, as I also wanted to see if I could strip away some of the mask you might see with celebrities.

Alongside that, I wanted to test myself with subjects who are more vulnerable so I also worked with young carers.

I wanted to give the young carers more freedom in front of the camera and with the celebrities I was trying to strip away their celebrity and bring them down to a level that the viewer would also be able to relate to.

They are very different subjects but I wanted to bring them to a level where they could be viewed side by side.
