Winning photographer inspired by King’s education
King’s photographic competition winner Naeem Meer (War Studies, 2010) says his winning shot reflects the outcome of three years of education and the knowledge and insight that he gained while studying at King's.
The King’s World competition invited King’s students and alumni to submit images that display how King’s is special to them and to celebrate the people, energy, creativity and diversity that characterises King’s at home and abroad.
Meer’s photograph, which was taken in Zanzibar, was chosen from a selection of 60 images from those submitted since June 2011 and relates to the time he spent travelling following graduation.
‘Not only did my degree teach me how to think more critically,’ said Meer ‘but it also enabled me to become more open-minded and curious about other realities in the world. My time at King's was determinant in my decision to travel across East Africa and my use of photography enabled me to discover and understand other cultures and other people.’
Meer’s photograph will be placed on permanent display in Somerset House East Wing following its official opening on 29 February 2012.
You can support the renovation of Somerset House East Wing through the World questions|King’s answers campaign.
