Photographers are the Eyes of Our Times
 
         
         
 

            We live in an age of images. On billboards, in newspapers and magazines, on television and in the cinema or via the internet, our perception of the world in the early twenty-first century is defined more by pictures than the written word.

             Certain images can even become part of our collective consciousness: the Harbour Bridge under construction or from 16,000 feet, the Southern Cross in flight, the Sydney Opera House at sunrise, Ayers Rock at sunset, Johnny O’Keefe at the Sydney Stadium, Gough Whitlam on the steps of Parliament House, a Sunbaker lying on a beach, people pushing an old car along a country road, European migrants arriving in Sydney in the sixties.

             But far less well known are the people who were responsible for these images in the first place. The Words on Light series redresses this. It brings these photographers out from behind their lenses, relates the stories behind the photographs and allows the photographers to articulate their ideas, thoughts and ambitions.

             This first series of Words on Light profiles Australian photographers
