Capturing architiecture - Marion Abada

Capturing architiecture - Marion Abada Image

Having held a life-long interest in art, design and space, final year photography student Marion Abada says she draws on architecture as her main source of inspiration.

“When I started college I thought I was going to do all the arty kind of stuff but I found myself really interested in architecture,” she said.

“I was always interested in the idea of being able to capture what the architects were thinking about when designing those spaces and to see if I could replicate those ideas with photography and try and represent them.”

According to Marion, her latest body of work was all captured while on holiday with her family at iconic European landmarks, including Notre Dame Cathedral and Musee d’Orsay (pictured) in Paris and the Natural History Museum in London.

Now in her fifth year of study, Marion’s architectural inspired imagery has recently earned her the Victorian Student Photographer of the Year at the Australian Professional Photography Awards 2014.

Having worked in the corporate world for more than 20 years as a management consultant, the mother of two says her decision to take on an advanced diploma in 2010 has helped fulfill a life-long passion.

“The award was a real confidence booster,” she said. “I had always wanted to study photography and to have the opportunity to get back to doing something creative rather than something so commercial has been amazing.”

Marion says the award is a true reflection of how much she has enjoyed her education at the Photography Studies College, which itself has just been acknowledged as Australian Tertiary Photography Institution of the Year.

“I love it, it’s been really good,” she said. “The teachers have been fantastic, there are some really quality teachers who work in the industry and know from experience how to help shape what you’re doing.”
