Curators and Photography

Have uploaded to our photo-web site a special section on the first photography curators — Australian that is.   We have listed four: Jennie Boddington, Ian North, Gael Newton (me!), and Alan Davies. The listings for Jennie and myself include 1983 interviews by the Australian Centre of Photography. These are very long!  (you have been warned)

If you know of any other useful online material on these people, please make contact.

Spot On

the art of film stills photography, 1906–2001

I was approached by Penny Grist of the National Portrait Gallery in Canberra to advise on the 2017 exhibition — Starstruck. I then had the great experience of working with the co-curators Penny from the Portrait Gallery and Jenny Coombes of National Film and Sound Archive. This was a fun collaborative research experience — with my essay published in their book for the exhibition. Click here for the essay now online.
