    Regarding the Pain...

    Interesting show at the Australian Centre for Photography, Oxford Street, Paddington NSW.

    It's mind twisting to search for aesthetics in war photography; the one of WW2 Australian troops moving in an Egyptian sand storm is beautiful, perhaps because of the obscured detail.

    The link works for me.
    If you want to try direct, type acp.org.au into your url bar and look at the exhibitions page.

    I've just tried it and it seems OK (I usually test URLs before posting)

    I can only guess that the ACP had a problem, apologies for any inconvenience.

    Hi Ross - Have you seen the exhibition in person? On your link, I can only see 4 photos, none of which is the WW2 Australian troops you mentioned. Looks like an interesting exhibition anyway.

    Yes, I stumbled on it when in Paddo to see a movie. I don't see many ACP shows, they have a style which doesn't appeal to me: frequently their point of view seems to favour digital pics of inner city folk and situations with odd colour casts (photographic colour that is!). They print these in their expensive and subsidised magazine, too.

    Anyway, that off my chest, there are about 40 or so war pictures from WW1 through Vietnam to Afghanistan. I'm not sure that some of these war photographers aren't mad to place themselves in the situations depicted.

    It's nice to stumble upon an interesting show. I doubt if I'll be in Sydney while this exhibition is running... pity.
    I heard an interesting interview with a war correspondent the other day. I think these people often do what they do, not so much in spite of the risks, but rather because they get a buzz out of the risks. They have bigger stones than me! The good ones do send back some pretty intense images.
