Photography students showcase their work

La Trobe Creative Arts photography students open new exhibition at the Phyllis Palmer Gallery in Bendigo.

Local creative arts photography students have opened an exhibition of their work at La Trobe University’s Phyllis Palmer Gallery.

Killing Time investigates the way that photography is able to capture and reflect time, memory and death.

The diverse images on show highlight the breadth of issues and ideas that students deal with through photography: from the struggles of single-parenting, adolescence, family violence and family history, to disability, essentialism and surrealism.

Fifteen students are participating in the exhibition, which is curated by La Trobe University Creative Arts staff Jessie Boylan, Kristian Haggblom and Warwick Baker.

“This exhibition is a great opportunity for students to recognise, and be recognised for, the work they have done,” said co-curator Jessie Boylan.

Killing Time is open on weekdays until Thursday 29 June 2017.
