Documenting Histories
Panel Discussion
Friday 3 May 4.00pm – 5.30pm


Join our panel of experts for a conversation about the past and future of documentary photography and photojournalism in the post-digital age. Approximately one hundred images from the Sydney Morning Herald Vintage Photo Archives will be displayed in Webb’s Galleries for viewing during the event. This important archive of historical documentary, news and art photography provides a fascinating insight into twentieth-century Australasian photo culture.

Panel Members Bruce Connew (social/political documentary photographer/publisher), Dr. Sophia Powers (inaugural recipient of the Marti Friedlander Lectureship in Photographic Practices and History) and Dieneke Jansen (lens-based artist and Senior Lecturer of Visual Arts at AUT) are to be moderated by Becky Nunes (Head of Department – Photo Media at Whitecliffe College of Arts & Design and filmmaker).
