2016 Advanced Diploma Graduate Tim Allen featured on Creative Review

One of our 2016 Advanced Diploma graduates; Tim Allen, has had his work featured on Creative Review!!

 

The series ‘Construct’ explores the effect of industrialisation on the earth. From a height of 1500ft and 3000ft, the images show construction and road-work sites as well as other industrial environments in and around Melbourne. While the images make the sites look quite impressive, they’re also highlighting the destructive effects of human activity. 

Tim is now based in the Netherlands, see more of his work here

 

Aint Bad

One of our fantastic photographer’s; Hoda Afshar has been featured on Aint Bad with her ongoing work “In The Exodus, I Love You More”

 

“In the Exodus, I love you more is an ongoing photographic series that I began in 2014. It is a record of my changing vision of, and relationship to, my homeland, Iran:
a relationship that has been shaped by my having been away, by that distance that increases the nearness of all the things to which memory clings, and which renders the familiar… strange, and veiled.
It is an attempt to embrace that distance and to turn it into a kind of seeing. To let what is both there and not there shine through the surface. To let the surface speak. It is an attempt to explore the interplay of presence and absence in the history of Iran and in Iranians’ lives, and to discover the truth that lies there in their never-ending meeting, in-between.”

 

The collective behind Aint Bad is dedicated to publishing contemporary photography and text to support a progressive community of artists from around the world.

Well done Hoda!
