about this item

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 the visual representation of our political leaders and campaigns, crime and the body, war and censorship, international events, disaster and trauma, sport, celebrity, gender, race and migration. It maps the technological evolution in the industry from the dark room to digital, from picturegram vans to the iPhone, and from the death knock to the ascendancy of social media images, and whether these changes spell the end of press photography as we have known it.
