Students in Cumbria hope new exhibition will help secure jobs

A photography exhibition highlighting Cumbrian students work hopes to boost their job prospects.

The work is based on a collection of subjects, from the way social media fits into our lives to journeys and the memories associated with them.

The students have not yet completed their final year but have put their work on show for the public and potential employers.

"All of the project has been off our own backs.

We've been working since November to put the whole exhibition together. It's been great professional develop for all of us, we have learnt a lot.

We just wanted to sort of create and exhibition not just for photographers like us, but also for the general public to come in and see."
