An exhibition opening soon at RMIT's First Site Gallery features the work of students of RMIT’s traditional and historic photography program who have or are in the process of establishing “fine art” careers. RMIT’s BA Photography program continues to train many of our leading young commercial, fashion and scientific photographers. But as This is Not Fine Art will show, graduates also use the strong the strong technical training provided by the program as the basis for a fine art practice.

Among the eight exhibiting artists is Warwick Baker, whose Rocklea, QLD from the series After the flood (2011) is currently on display at MGA as part of the 2011 Bowness Photography Prize.
