Be intrigued by Australian press photography
The State Library of Queensland is currently hosting the 2015 Nikon-Walkley Press Photography Exhibition in the ground floor section known as the Infozone.

The exhibition features press photographs from Fairfax Media and News Limited photographers as well as freelance press photographers. This year's exhibited photographs document and highlight various issues such as the Middle Eastern war and refugee situation, life in an Aboriginal community and Schoolies week in Bali. Other topics include sporting wins and the Lindt Cafe Siege memorial.

I found the exhibition space itself to be nicely laid out with enough room for two people to comfortable walk through each section and wander around the gallery. The photographer synopses are large enough to read at a reasonable distance (though sometimes oddly positioned) and the photos themselves are good quality, clear prints.

Some of the content is graphic and confronting due the topic (war, drug use etc), and a couple of photographs contain partial nudity so viewer discretion and adult is supervision may be preferred. The exhibition runs until the 22nd of November 2015.

I enjoy going to World Press photo exhibits that capture reality grim as it may be.

Was this the same exhibition that was just recently at the Powerhouse in New Farm?
