Reportage Festival Sydney - Opens tonight

In the midst of a typical Sydney spring deluge, yesterday I visited the Australian Centre for Photography in Paddington to view some of the exhibitions that form this year's Reportage Festival. Stephen Dupont's ongoing essay on Afghanistan is a brilliant body of work. Writer Jacques Menasche, who collaborates with Stephen, sums up the work - "staring life in the eye and in the tripping shutter of the camera life blinks first". Check out the program - Reportage 2010
