OUT OF ORDER

OUT OF ORDER is a body of work that records the neighbourhood of Cathays through the eyes of the university students who live there. Cathays is the third most populous borough in Cardiff, with 52.8% of its population being aged 20-24. The density of students in this area provides a completely unique living experience. A blend of portraiture, still life and landscape, these photographs are shot in a raw and gritty documentary style to capture the dirty and fast paced student culture. Wide angle and close up shots give depth to the different scenes, bringing you into and revealing the detail of the streets and households the students inhabit. Cathays police ‘Operation Saturn’ deters noise, litter and crime within this community, and points to the double edge sword of being a student. They are perpetrators of these anti-social behaviours, yet most significantly, the victims of unfair living standards and practices by letting agents. It is ‘Out of Order’.
