A student photographer is the latest young person to showcase his work in a market stall that has been transformed into an exhibition space.

Stall 157 on Norwich Market has been taken over by the Somewhereto_ project which aims to give 16 to 25-year-olds a platform to exhibit their art or present performances.

This week passers by have had the chance to see the photographs of Norwich University of the Arts student Jordan Hudson, 19, whose exhibition Philosophy on Life? aims to paint a picture of the people of Norwich.

Mr Hudson, who was inspired by American photographer Stephen Shore and also the Humans of New York initiative, has been taking photos of passers by before interviewing them about their thoughts. His exhibition features eight people from all walks of life.

'I have tried to paint a picture of Norwich and how we are all living the same life but very differently,' Mr Hudson said.

Philosophy on Life? is his first exhibition, and he said the opportunity from Somewhereto_ was a big confidence boost and a great chance to get feedback about his work.

'It is great for people like me trying to get our work out there, especially with limited funds being a student. It is brilliant to get experience of putting on an exhibition.'
