2021 Babinda School Workshop

PCPA is delighted to be working with students in Year 9 and 10 at Babinda State School on a five-week photography workshop. The workshop, designed with teacher Karina Talbott, aims to engage students with documentary photography and watercolour painting.

Students are learning the basic principles of documentary photography, using their own far north Queensland village of Babinda as their subject, and will use digital cameras to explore the town over two walking field trips.

Students’ photographs will be selected and edited to create an exhibition of the town from the students’ perspectives. To give the photographs a personal and unique touch, the images will be printed in black and white and then hand painted by the students.
