20.6

20.6 is an exhibition currently taking place in the John Lennon Art & Design building, showcasing work by photographer Henry Woodley. Curated by History of Art BA student Holly Christopher, the show is named after the shortest distance in miles across the English Channel.

Investment, Tabitha Moses
