Photography credit: Images by Marion Abada www.marionabada.com.au Marion is a current PSC second year student. These images are part of her Photo Impressionism series which applies the concepts of the 19th Century painting style of Impressionism through the medium of digital photography. In these images Marion was interested in exploring the nature of time and how changes to the time of year, time of day or even random fleeting moments create differences in how we emotionally engage with and respond to the world around us.
Third year Bachelor of Photography student Sophie Pigram recently visited Tokyo and was hosted by Japan’s premier photobook library and workshop, the Reminders Photography Stronghold (RPS). This opportunity was made possible by Bachelor of Photography course coordinator Daniel Boetker-Smith, and Director of the RPS Yumi Goto.
Sophie is interviewing Yoshikatsu Fuji & Daichi Koda, two of Japan’s most exciting young photographers, exclusively for the Photobook Melbourne Festival. Fuji and Koda are award winning photographers and in 2014 their (sold out) photo books were shortlisted for a number of major international prizes.
