Time Machine: Sue Ford

BY Bundoora Homestead Art Centre | 15-Aug-2012
Time Machine: Sue Ford August 31 2012 - October 14 2012 Sue Ford (1943–2009) was one of Australia’s most important photographers and filmmakers. Ford studied photography at RMIT and in 1974 was the first Australian photographer accorded a solo exhibition at the National Gallery of Victoria. The exhibition describes a period when photography was charged with political and personal meaning. It provides a great opportunity for audiences to reassess the talent of this important photographer, whose work was at once political, beautiful and elegiac. In an era when the photograph has become highly disposable it is important to acknowledge its role as an agent of change and memory. Monash Gallery of Art travelling exhibition
