Photography Studies College is proud to present Kate Disher-Quill for our first Image Makers Seminar of 2019. Kate’s talk will coincide with the launch of her latest photography book Earshot, and accompanying zine Fish on the Floor.
Both publications offer a rare, visceral insight into the world of deafness and hearing loss. After winning the POOL grant in 2014 Kate developed this work for a photographic exhibition, which was shown in Sydney, Melbourne and Canberra. Earshot is the latest extension of this project and uses photography, illustration and intimate stories from over 35 subjects to reveal the diversity and complexity of deafness. Diagnosed with hearing loss at 3 years of age and fitted with hearing aids when she was 10, Kate’s driving force behind this project was to create something that would have helped her accept her deafness much earlier in life.
This special event will be held in the PSC Studio, Ground entrance next to 65 City Road. Wheelchair access is available from the rear of our building in Fawkner Street. Our building is clearly marked. Call 9682 3191.
An Auslan interpreter will be used in conjunction with this talk.
*A book signing session will take place after the seminar.
Earshot - $49.99 | Fish on the Floor - $25

About our monthly Image Makers Seminar Series
The Image Makers Seminar Series (IMSS) was first established in 2014 and is part of PSC’s commitment to supporting photography and engaging photographers in the wider community. These events are held on either the last Monday or Friday of the month. Sometimes these events are planned on other weekdays due to speaker availability. They start at 6pm and conclude by 7.30pm. We have a great team of staff who work on the Image Makers Seminar Series. You may also forward your invitation to friends who might be interested in coming along.
