International photography graduates success


Antonina Zharko graduated from the photography programme in 2014; we’ve known since semester one in first year that she had something very special. Her early work in the darkroom won “Photographer of the Year” in the Smedia’s. Not many first year students could claim such an accolade.

Following a number of successes, Harper’s Bazaar Ukraine became interested in Zharko’ s work. She met with the editor and got on great. Antonia was asked to do an editorial and the magazine subsequently bumped the planned cover shot to use one of Zharko’ s instead.

The sky is the limit! We are all so proud of her success. Below is the link to the editorial.

Julia Gelezova also a graduate of the 2014 class has had her work which she produced in her final year here at Griffith, selected as one of the finalists in “Photobook Melbourne Photo Award.

Photobook Melbourne is similar to the Dublin run Library Project, it is an artist run organisation created to celebrate photographic art practices and photo books. It serves as an archive of contemporary and innovative work.  The winner will be announced on February 4th.

The theme was “memory”, below is Julia’s entry and link to the Photobook Melbourne page.
