This year we bring you a number of special bonus selections - chosen from the 2012 BA Submissions. We asked some of the Directors, from those courses who participated in 2012, to choose their favourite set of work. The only condition we set was that the work they chose had to be from a course other than their own.

Selector's Comment: Rhodri Brooks' images show a perceptive observation of, what appears to be, everyday life but with a special awareness of the precarious divide between absurdity and 'normality'. There is a knowledge and understanding of the history of portraiture in both painting and photography, which is carefully acknowledged, but at the same time exploited and twisted to add another layer of meaning. This is beautiful and contemplative work which displays a sensitivity and delicacy with its use of natural light and simple props. The images contain hints rather than explanations and leave us with questions rather than answers. I love the serious humour that makes one re-evaluate the content and context of the photographs.
