We are the graduating class of 2021. It has been a tumultuous year, as the pandemic gripped our way of life in Melbourne. Despite an enduring lockdown, we managed to navigate the challenges presented to us in our photography, and to zoom through our studies online.
We are most grateful to our teaching staff at Melbourne Polytechnic: Maurizio Salvati, Steve Scalone, Keren Dobia, Chris Hillard, Arrayah Loynd and Nick Thorley. Without their guidance, help and mentoring, our work would not have reached what we thought was possible. We acknowledge our former leading teacher, Natalie Morawski, for her wonderful mentorship.
Thankyou to the many industry representatives who have given their time to us to speak in our classes, review our work, and provide support services. You have inspired us to strive to do our very best.
Particular thanks to our sponsors who have generously donated products, services and prints for our Print Auction and Gradshow Exhibition. Your support has encouraged all of us.
Lastly, thankyou to our families and friends for your patience and for being there along our journey. Without you, it will have been that much harder.
Our heartfelt gratitude to you all.
