PSC's Master of Arts - Photography Convenor Dr. Kristian Häggblom was one of 15 emerging curators from around the world invited to the In Focus Curator Forum by the Ballarat International Foto Biennale. Each participant had to present on a timely topic over the four-day event. The final day culminated in portfolio reviews given to selected photographers. Kristian gives us insights into the key issues discussed, his presentation on exhibiting photography in alternative spaces – and his own BIFB exhibit 'Aokigahara Jukai' which documents a forest at the foot of Mt. Fuji in Japan over nearly two decades.
PSC's tutor Jessica Ledwich's latest photography exhibition is a reminder that women's desire is complex, powerful and very much alive! So why are we still uncomfortable with female sexuality, and is it invisible in contemporary society? Jessica investigates this in relation to the camera in her show 'Our Desires Are Not Our Own'. It's listed in the 'Top 5 Exhibitions To See This Week' by Art Guide Australia.
