 Boston College Photography Lecturer makes her European TV Debut

Boston College staff members and students will be tuning in to Sky Arts next week to see if their Photography Lecturer has what it takes to be titled ‘Master of Photography’
Danyelle Rolla, who is a Photography Lecturer at Boston College successfully, secured a place as a contestant on the popular Sky Arts TV show ‘Masters of Photography’. The show’s aim is to find Europe’s best photographer over a series of eight episodes. Each week the 10 contestants compete to convince a jury of internationally renowned photographers and industry experts that they have the skill, instinct and versatility, with the winner taking home €100,000 (approx. £87,000) – the largest prize money of any photography competition.


Danyelle, who was formerly a Royal Air Force Photographer and has served in various areas of conflict including Northern Ireland and Iraq, won her place with a portfolio that focuses on the contemporary working-class of Britain. Danyelle uses this way of documenting the class system to challenge negative attitudes towards the working-class.


Speaking of the competition, Danyelle said, “Being selected for the show is amazing. I could not believe that such prolific people in the industry selected my portfolio as one of the top ten in Europe. I cannot wait to start this journey, not only for myself but also to show my students just where you can go with photography. I love photography and I love sharing my skills with others.”


If you are interested in studying Photography, please come along to Boston College’s next Open Event on Saturday 23rd June, 12:00pm – 2:00pm


‘Master of Photography’ airs on Tuesday 29th May, 8:00pm on Sky Arts (Channel 122)
