6 photographers

In 1955 six Australian photographers – Gordon Andrews, Max Dupain, Kerry Dundas, Hal Missingham, Axel Poignant and David Potts – presented an exhibition in Sydney that represented a shift from the traditions of the past to the recording of contemporary life.

This 2009-10 exhibition presents five photographs by each, stressing their ambition to make ‘unstaged, spontaneous and personal records’.
