The A-level pupils have taken the pictures as part of their photography course, around the theme of "globalisation".

The photographs are meant to convey the social and economic changes that are part of globalisation, while the planet becomes more interconnected.

The work will be on display at the gallery in Gordon Square until July 26.

Student Eliot Tanner said: "Each of us have a unique vision on what globalisation means to us that will inform the public and hopefully encourage others to make the world a better place in the future. Being offered the opportunity to present at the Peltz has pushed me to respond to a topic which is both current and extremely important."

Director of the Peltz Gallery, Annie Coombes said: "The Fortismere students have showed a great deal of maturity in their photography and curation. It should give us all hope."
