AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'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 our political leaders and campaigns, crime, war and censorship, international events, disasters and trauma, sport, celebrity, gender, race and migration. It maps the technological evolution in the industry from the dark room to digital, from picturegram machines to iPhones, and from the death knock to the ascendancy of social media. It raises the question whether these changes will spell the end of traditional press photography as we know it. ...'

— Review of Shooting the Picture : Press Photography in Australia Fay Anderson 2016 single work criticism
'As Michael Gawenda​ notes in his introduction to this history of Australian newspaper photography, the images, often as not, survive well after the story itself. It's a readable yet serious study that charts the rise of news pictorials from the 1880s to the present day, and is alert to such issues as authenticity, and not just digital enhancement. Early shots were nearly always set-ups. It also takes us into the magic, closed domain of the darkroom, which many photographers interviewed for the book talk of in hushed tones. ...'
