Bruce Postle: image maker

3 May 2013 to 30 June 2013

Bruce Postle, one of Australia’s most celebrated photojournalists has taken thousands of images in over half a century of photojournalism. In 32 years working with The Age, Postle captured some of the most iconic images of our times.

This special exhibition presents over 50 photographs from the master story-teller. Every photograph in the exhibition tells a vivid story, and Bruce has captioned the images to disclose the humorous, profound and moving moments behind these remarkable photographs.

Gallery Director, Shaune Lakin states: “Bruce Postle is truly one of Australia’s great photojournalists. Before the days of citizen journalism and social media, we relied on people like Bruce to put a picture to the events of the day. Across five decades, Bruce’s photographs helped Victorians see the events of the world as they unfolded.”
