Sue Ford was a pioneer of Australian photography and one of the most important practitioners to emerge in the wave of 1970s feminist photographers. Ford’s work was both personal and political, and shows a fascination with private, shared and forgotten histories. This comprehensive publication, produced in collaboration with the Sue Ford Archive – the first major monograph on the artist – is a celebration of her outstanding artistic life and prolific career. Sue Ford features key photographs, digital prints, collages and films as well as significant archival material from Ford’s long career. Texts by Maggie Finch, Virginia Fraser, Shaune Lakin, Marcia Langton and Helen Ennis provide a multifaceted look back to Ford’s career and the overarching themes in her work: identity, time, feminism and gender issues and Australian history and politics.
Published to coincide with the exhibition to be held at The Ian Potter Centre: NGV Australia at Federation Square, 17 April – 24 August 2014
