PSC Weekly Wrap

STUDENT: Marion Abada, 3rd Year PT
ASSIGNMENT: 3rd Year, 1st Semester Folio – Solace
COMMENT: The idea behind this folio was to explore the concept of ‘solace’ in the context of the spaces created within Melbourne’s oldest and most significant churches and cathedrals.   I wanted to focus on the architecture itself and how the design of these buildings has created spaces that continue to inspire awe, reflect power and provide comfort and respite to those that need it.    The biggest challenge I had in creating these images was the huge tonal range of church interiors.  Lots of bright window lights and dark corners meant I needed to bracket images and HDR process (Photomatrix) before adding back selective contrast, highlights and darkening off areas to get the final images feeling the way I wanted.   I learnt a lot while creating this series.  With the constant presence of church tour guides walking the aisles, I also learnt heaps about the spaces themselves too.  Did you know that the architect for St Patricks Cathedral could not be convinced to leave England to design or oversee the building of our city’s most famous cathedral?


The X Factor – An exhibition by Michael Coyne

Photonet Gallery
15a Railway Place, Fairfield, Victoria
Exhibition Dates: 10th June to 30th June
10am to 4 pm Tuesdays to Saturday

This insightful exhibition was opened by PSC Academic Director Les Horvat,

“It is only necessary to briefly look at the images on the walls around us to be struck by their intimacy and their lack of artifice. That Michael is able to get so close – both physically and emotionally to his subjects, speaks not only of his skill as a photographer….. but also shines a light onto him as a person.

For these images show their subjects in widely diverse moments of time and activity – some intimate, some defiant, some casual, some confronting and some devoid of the intrusions of the camera…… or indeed of the presence of the photographer…”
