In an interview with ABC News in July 2016, graduate student Emily Wilson was thrilled to be able to take photos of her final graduation.
“I’m so excited to be the first Australian graduate in my field and to have my picture taken with my own friends,” Ms Wilson said.
Ms Wilson has been in the industry for about four years. “
But it’s important that when I’m in the final year of my degree that it feels like it’s been a year.”
Ms Wilson has been in the industry for about four years.
She started taking photos at the age of 17.
“In high school, I used to take all the photos that were on my school walls, so when I graduated, I had a whole new life, and I really wanted to take the next step and be the next generation of people who took pictures,” she said.
Ms Wilson was also inspired by the fact that the first graduates in her field graduated from the same university.
“If you’re a student at an elite university like Harvard, you’re in a class of your own,” she says.
“So I was looking for inspiration to start taking photos of my graduation.
I’ve always wanted to be a photographer.”
Ms Whitson is a graduate student in the digital arts at the University of Sydney.
“Photography is so important, it’s one of those things that’s not so easily accessible to everyone, so it’s really important for us to create spaces where people can come together,” she explains.
Ms Whitons photography project, titled A Year in Photography, will feature some of her favourite photos.
It is set to be published online on May 22.
