Time Machine: Sue Ford

Sue Ford was one of Australia’s most important photographers and filmmakers. Her Time series (1960s-70s) is one of the key moments in late modernist Australian photography. Ford passed away in late 2009, before her death she was working with MGA on an exhibition of her work which would include photographs of women from 1960s-70s and her Time series. The highlight of the exhibition is Ford’s as yet unexhibited long-term project, Self-portrait with camera, an extraordinary series of 47 self-portraits taken between 1960 and 2006.

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.

Awareness Walk

This is one of the first exercises that all first year students undertake- it encourages students to explore a familar plave and space using all their senses; feeling what’s around them, letting go of preconceived ideas and notions and being open to a ‘sense of place’. Students then return with their camera- here are some of our first year full time studnets’ images:

 

Shifting Tides Exhibition

The Shifting Tides exhibition at Herring Island was opened on Saturday 19 March with an acknowledgement to country by Lance Briggs a Boonwurrung man. Lance drew our attention to the place and space we find ourselves in on Herring Island, and in her opening speech, Julie Moss reflected on the powerful nature of the exhibition’s theme given the change and upheaval the world is currently experiencing. It was wonderful to share this time with PSC staff, guests, the exhibiting photographers, their family and friends. The feedback on the day was that the exhibition is particularly strong and gives rise to contemplation and engagement with the theme. Congratulations to everyone involved.
