Student travels in The Times

April 2, 2015

An art student from West Cheshire College had her photographs and travel review featured in The Sunday Times following a trip to Romania.

Viorica Naudi, who is studying HND in Art and Design at the College, had her experiences of sightseeing and cultural visits of museums, theatres and churches in Transylvania, featured in the prestigious newspaper's travel supplement.

The photographs were originally produced for a College assignment for an Art and Design exhibition in Chester and the photographs are still being exhibited in the College’s art department.

Viorica, 56, from Chester, said: “I took the photos as part of my College project and I sent them to The Sunday Times.

“I was so shocked that they were selected to be used in the supplement and they were on the front page which was an amazing achievement.

“I’ve had a lot of support from my tutor Paul which has been a great help. I’m sure these awards will help me when I leave College and look for a job as a photographer.”

Paul Evans, Course Leader HND in Art and Design at West Cheshire College, said: “Viorica is an extremely talented and creative student.

“It is a fantastic achievement that her work has ended up in The Sunday Times. Viorica has gained more photography assignments since the article appeared so it has been great exposure for her.”

Viorica achieved further success when another photograph she had taken in Souk, Marrakech, won an award at Chester Photography Society.
