Photography of the Age
Newspaper Photography in Australia, From Glass Plate Negatives to DigitalBook - 2014
Are newspapers dead? As resources for daily newspapers are reduced the roles of newspaper photographers and journalists are likewise under pressure. This second book on Photography of The Age by Kathleen Whelan looks at the impact of the digital age on professional photographers and provides an insight into how they bring to the readers what is important; socially, politically and historically. Photography of The Age also provides historical context of some of the most famous images published, why they are chosen as well as technical information from the photographers themselves on how they produced such memorable images.
