Vale Barry Thompson
15.12.1944 – 2.4.2015
Unfortunately we have some very sad news. Our much loved teacher and Industry Liaison Coordinator Barry Thompson passed away just on Easter after a long illness.
He was such a loved and respected teacher here at PSC for more than 20 years – always so full of pizzaz and creative spirit!
He introduced PSC’s Industry Mentor Program and worked tirelessly to link students to the photography industry. He was passionate about assisting students to develop their careers and maintained ongoing links with our graduates and the industry.
His art and art practice was an essential part of his creative life as was his teaching and his connection with students – it was so integral to who he was.
It’s a very sad time for all of us particularly those staff who worked so closely with Barry for so many years, and all our many students and graduates.
PSC is hosting a Memorial Service to celebrate his life. This will be held next Thursday 16 April 2015, at St John’s Southgate, 20 City Road, Southbank 3006, commencing at 11am with refreshments to follow afterwards at PSC, 65 City Road, Southbank. All welcome. At Barry’s request – wear something red.
