UWC Atlantic College // De Tijd

UWC atlantic college, wales

The independent 6th form school, UWC Atlantic college photographed for Belgian newspaper, De Tijd. The 12th century castle – once owned by American newspaper magnate, William Randolph Hearst – occupies a beautiful spot on the south Wales coast. Founded in 1962 by educationalist, Kurt Hahn, in recent times the college has become the favoured educational establishment for European Royals including Belgian Princess, Elisabeth. In their learning programme, the college places a strong emphasis on uniting people, nations and cultures in order to create peace and a sustainable future.

I photographed the Principal, Naheed Bardai and two Belgian pupils, Gabriel and Adubakar, who won a scholarship to the college after arriving in Belgium as a refugee from Afghanistan, three years ago.
