Confronting and visceral is one way to describe visual artist and Photography Studies College graduate Sophie Gabrielle's haunting series (currently on exhibition via Foam gallery in New York and featured in Foam magazine). While her body of work may tug on our fears of being human lab rats, she says it was all part of her healing process . We talk to Sophie about her experimental work, artist residency in Iceland and how PSC helped nurture her award-winning artistic sensibilities.

For many of our second year Bachelor of Photography students who went to the Obscura Festival of Photography this year, they hadn't been to Malaysia before, however one of our international students Antoine Loncle was born in Penang and was living there before he moved to Melbourne to undertake his studies at PSC. We sat down with Antoine to chat about his experience at Obscura and his perspective on his town.

“ 'Hear the dance, see the music' is a quote spoken by the legendary choreographer George Balanchine, to describe the relationship between dance and music. In six words, he has articulated how dance visually expresses music, and what dancers should bear in mind when they perform. For many, dance is music made visible."
Wanderlust, that deep desire to travel to a place far away, is a familiar feeling in so many of us. What if you had the opportunity to travel overseas and do a workshop with renowned photographers, then sit down and have a drink and chat with them afterwards, all the while improving your photography? Of course you would go! That's exactly what some of our second year Bachelor of Photography students did. We recently caught up with Monica Wilmott who went to Malaysia's premiere photography festival; Obscura.
