New book: Photography of The Age by Kathleen Whelan



Newspaper photography in Australia from glass plate negatives to digital.

Photographer, teacher and writer Kathleen Whelan pays tribute to the men and women with cameras who every day add meaning to the bald newspaper narrative with their pictures. Her book, Photography of The Age: Newspaper Photography in Australia from Glass Plate Negatives to Digital, is a history of photography in this newspaper, a description of the process of assignment and picture selection and biographies of many of the paper’s outstanding photographers. It is a lesson in the art and process of photojournalism.
