'Freshers' by Ed Watts.

Well it's about that time of year again. Another crop of wide eyed hopelessly optimistic youngsters arrive here in town to add to Manchester's huge student population. Arriving with intact bank balances and credit ratings and with dreams of high flying careers and maybe love. For some it will be the first time they have left the nest. I like to use the analogy of those little turtle things scampering down the beach to the sea, some will make it and some........ well won't.
Photographer Ed Watts has got in just as they hatch so to speak with the first part of his project to document by using portraiture, a group of students during their time at university. You can see the first installment below and read more about it HERE.
Good luck my little student turtle friends, good luck and swim.......
