Celebrating the (Extra)Ordinary
Congratulations to recent graduate Freya Rowson (BA History, 2021; MA Film and Television, 2022) who has won the [Extra]Ordinary Portraits competition. The competition, created by the Holocaust Memorial Day Trust in partnership with the Royal School of Drawing, asked young people to learn about someone affected by the Holocaust, genocide, or identity-based persecution and create a portrait of them.
Freya chose to paint Rudolf Brazda, the last known concentration camp survivor deported by Nazi Germany on charges of homosexuality. Hers was one of only two competition entries chosen to be exhibited and is being displayed alongside portraits of genocide survivors taken by renowned photographer and competition judge Rankin.
