at Herring Island Gallery
Opening 12 - 2pm on 19 March
Shifting Tides is a collection of images from Photography Studies College graduate students of 2010. It comprises a series of photographic explorations around the notion of the shifting tide. These images can be interpreted literally or metaphorically, can be seen to relate to the Yarra itself, or engage more broadly with the environment in general. Some of the images also can be seen to have cultural, social or political significance as they contribute to our understandings and very timely reflections on the power and immensity of the shifting tide.”
Herring Island is situated on the Yarra River, Melbourne. The Gallery is open on weekends (from 12 noon to 4:45pm each Saturday and Sunday) and the PSC exhibition will run from March 19 – April 3 2011
The exhibition will be held in the Herring Island Gallery. The island is located in the Yarra River and is accessible from the Como Landing, Toorak, using Parks Victoria's weekend punt service. The Festival is conducted with the sponsorship of Parks Victoria who manages the Island.

Photography Studies College the 2009 Tertiary Institute of the Year.
Photography Studies College (PSC) has scooped the education awards in the national photography industry awards for 2009.
At the gala Canon Australian Professional Photography Awards night in Sydney on 29th June, Australia's peak photography industry association, the Australian Institute of Professional Photography (AIPP) awarded PSC the 2009 AIPP Tertiary Institute of the Year, and awarded PSC student Alf Caruana the 2009 AIPP Australian Student Photographer of the Year. These two education and training awards are sponsored by Kodak Professional Imaging Solutions.
The annual event recognises excellence in all areas of commercial photography, including photojournalism but also acknowledges excellence in the education and training sector of the industry. Eligible entrants for the photographic education awards come from the university and vocational education sector right across Australia
In accepting the awards, PSC's Managing Director Julie Moss acknowledged the enormous change the industry has undergone in recent years, and the huge challenges this poses for any college in keeping abreast of these changes. “One of the key challenges facing the industry is finding skilled teachers who are across all the latest technologies, not to mention the huge cost involved in funding these technologies. This award is a great acknowledgement of the dedication of our staff and the determination of our students to being the best", she said.
Former PSC student, Yervant Zanazanian was the winner of the 2009 Highest Scoring Wedding Print (Wedding Photojournalistic) Award and the 2009 AIPP Australian Wedding Photographer of the Year.
The PSC award winning entries will be featured in the new mid year exhibition as part of the PSC Open Day on Sunday 16th August 10am - 4pm.
