If you are still in Sydney, or anyone else, tomorrow (Sat 7th) is the last day to check out the Contacts exhibition at the ACP.
Australian Centre for Photography, Oxford St. Paddington.
Marking the 30th anniversary of one of the world's top photojournalist agencies this exhibition offers a rare insight into the making of some of the most iconic news images of the past three decades. Built around thirty giant contact sheets, each containing a now-famous image, the exhibition reveals the sequence of events before and after that moment giving a fresh insight into both the circumstances of the shoot and the decisions made in editing. Founded in 1976, Contact has documented an era that saw the end of Apartheid, the fall of the Berlin Wall, the dismantling of the Soviet Empire, revolution in Central America, the opening up of China, genocide in Africa, ethnic tension in the Balkans, the birth of the Internet and the War on Terror.
Quote from the ACP site. Excellent exhibition. The giant proof sheets look great.
