Photography Studies College Melbourne is delighted to present Sally Young (Political Scientist) and Fay Anderson (Historian), the authors of ‘Shooting the picture’.
Shooting The Picture is the story of Australian press photography from 1888 to today; the power of the medium, seismic changes in the newspaper industry, and photographers who were often more colourful than their subjects. This groundbreaking book explores our political leaders and campaigns, crime, war and censorship, international events, disasters and trauma, sport, celebrity, gender, race and migration. It maps the technological evolution in the industry from the dark room to digital, from picturegram machines to iPhones, and from the death knock to the ascendancy of social media. It raises the question whether these changes will spell the end of traditional press photography as we know it.
We invite PSC students, graduates and the general public to attend this Image Makers Seminar of 2016. This event will be held at PSC, Level 2, 65 City Road, Southbank.
