Looking Up, by Jasmine Hollins, was the winner of this years engineering photo competition at Southern Cross University (SCU) themed ‘Beautiful Engineering’.
The stunning image was taken recently on a trip to Melbourne at the Melbourne Central Station. The image looks skyward up the clock tower to the delicate lines of the overarching ceiling.
‘I was in Melbourne visiting my family when I took the photo and I never thought it would end up winning me a new camera,’ said Jasmine.
In one week the Lennox Head local will have completed her final placement at Ballina Coast High School as a visual arts teacher and will pack her bags to spend six months in the United States studying at Appalachian State University, a longstanding partner institution with Southern Cross University.
For me, photography is a developing passion, even though I’ve been clicking photos since I was 10 years old,’ she said.
A camera from Lismore Camera House is the perfect prize according to Jasmine.
‘I’ll be studying a photography unit in North Carolina and travelling while I’m there so it is perfect getting this gift two weeks before I leave.’
