Nathan Larkin (PSC Graduate)
'Cede' Exhibition Opening
23rd March, 5-7pm
Testing Grounds (1 - 23 City Road, Southbank VIC 3006)
Nathan Larkin, PSC graduate of the Bachelor Programme (majoring in photojournalism) is exhibiting 'Cede', after completing his studies. Nathan currently runs his own photography studio 'PhyNyght' - a collective for photographers and photojournalists and is extremely active in the Melbourne photography scene.
"Cede as a word lives in a duality of good and bad. My work is based on my time hiking around the Yarra River, from the mouth located at the Westgate to Warrandyte, where the fast water from the mountains meet the diversions and slack water of the tidal estuary. This work is an exploration of Colonial, Post Colonial, and Indigenous history along its banks and the psychogeography of the waterway.”
Reflecting on his time as a photography student, Nathan feels proud about having his exhibition in close proximity to the PSC campus, where so many friends and teachers influenced him in his work.
"My time at PSC was amazing and I learned to craft an idea and see where the potential lies in photographic storytelling. The staff and fellow students really helped me to understand and see my visual style, as well as the ways I could explore it more. PSC is full of very inspiring people and I am always amazed at the depth of feedback given. Katrin Koenning and Michael Coyne really pushed me to understand my visual language and how I wanted to tell my story."
We're are excited about having the chance to see Nathan's most recent displayed. The exhibition definitely promises to be an experience where viewers will get to ask deeper questions about the history and memories connected to places around us, in Melbourne.
