The annual photography exhibition of our all our students is about to open.
This year we are exhibiting at Fox Gallery and Studios at 8 Elizabeth Street, Kensington.The opening night is, Thursday the 3rd of November, from 6:00pm to 8:00pm. The gallery hours are, Thursday, Friday, 11:0am to 6:00pm, Saturday, Sunday, 11:00am to 5:00pm.
You have to be considerate of the tones that you are photographing. Seeing the process that you need to take to get the perfectly exposed photograph on analogue probably makes you more considerate in digital.
Like Deakin University and RMIT, we offer extensive training using analogue equipment and materials.
Luis Ascui a former student of PIC, presents the beginning of a new photographic journey into his homeland of Chile, with images of the indigenous Mapuche community who live in remote, southern regions of the country that border Argentina.
In his professional life he’s received the 2000 Nikon Award for Photojournalism Asia, covering Indonesia’s political transition to a post-Suharto government. Other significant work includes images from Afghanistan during the Taliban’s siege of Kabul, Cambodia when the Khmer Rouge were operational, Mexico’s Zapatista-indigenous uprising, and the civil conflict in northern Sri Lanka from the Tamil Tiger base in Kilinochchi. He has also photographed on location for broadcast networks (National Geographic and The Discovery Channel) in Mongolia’s Gobi desert, and from Mount Everest’s base camp 2, and undertakes “extreme” shoots in the Oceania region for programs such as Man vs. Wild with Bear Grylls and Naked Survivor with Ed Stafford. Much of his work in breaking news – for Reuters, Getty Images, AP, and magazines like TIME and newspapers around the globe – over the last two decades has covered frontline natural disaster stories such as the devastating Asia Boxing Day tsunami, and earthquakes in Pakistan, Nias Island, and Chile.
His interest in human stories explores history and some of the contemporary challenges faced by Chile’s indigenous culture. What comes to light is a struggle for recognition among these visual narratives. Early in his career, Luis received a grant from Panos (London) for documenting Mayan culture in Central America and those images were exhibited in Copenhagen at the United Nations Summit for Social Development. These recent photographs from Chile continue this visual narrative that began some 30 years ago.
