ACP Photography & Legal Rights is Digital Camera News, Digital Camera Reviews, Australian Photography News & Photography TipsVery rarely do we personally recommend talks or lectures but on this occasion the ACP have prepared what looks like a facinating and very interesting free talk on picture taking in public and your right to use (or not) those images. The speaker, Martyn Jolly will be accompanied by lawyer Katherine Giles and photo-activist Andrew Nemeth. So pencil this into the diary and pay the ACP a visit. See details and links below.

Australian Centre for Photography
257 Oxford Street, Paddington NSW
Free event

Can photographers take pictures in public any more? How much of the mood of panic and paranoia is legal fact and how much urban myth?

Join ANU academic Martyn Jolly, lawyer Katherine Giles and photo-activist Andrew Nemeth for an informed but informal discussion on your rights as a photographer... Are you about to lose them...

The discussion will be followed by tea and the opportunity to grab an advanced copy of Photofile 80 featuring a comprehensive review of the legal issues surrounding photography in Australia today.

About Australian Centre for Photography (ACP)


Established in 1973, the ACP opened the doors of its first gallery in Paddington Street, in 1974. In 1981 the Centre moved to Oxford Street where it remains today. It is now Australia's longest running contemporary art space.

It is the ACP's mission to promote and enrich the understanding of photo-based art in Australia and this is achieved through a dynamic mix of exhibition, education and publication. In its blend of activities and range of photographic media, the Centre is unique in Australia.

ACP opened a Workshop in 1976. Originally in a separate building, this is now housed within the Centre in Oxford Street and includes black and white and colour darkroom facilities, a digital suite, lighting studio and library. In 1983 ACP launched the journal Photofile. It is now the leading photo-based art magazine in Australia, available through newsagents and specialist bookshops nationally.

Currently located in the heart of Paddington, Sydney's gallery district, ACP houses two exhibition spaces; a foyer display area and a Project Wall for emerging artists; an extensive workshop with comprehensive curriculum and public access facilities; a specialist bookshop and library.

The ACP is a not-for-profit organisation supported by the NSW Government through the NSW Ministry for the Arts, the Australia Council, the Australian Government's arts funding and advisory body, and the Visual Arts and Craft Strategy, an initiative of the Australian, State and Territory Governments. The ACP raises over half of its revenue from non-government sources.
