Full program of exhibitions

 

Paper Tigers

Now showing at Twenty Twenty Six Gallery in Bondi, Paper Tigers features the remarkable work of the best 60 Australian photojournalists. The exhibition celebrates photojournalism at a time when the need for truthful journalism has never been more critical and takes us back to critical moments through recent Australian and world history, and the images by which we remember them. 

We were thrilled to have so many exhibiting photographers with us for the opening last Saturday and look foward to a bigger get-together when possible. 

Paper Tigers closes on Sunday 22 November so don't miss out!
