Join us for a glimpse into Olive Cotton’s extraordinary life behind the lens.
Presented by Emeritus Professor Helen Ennis, ANU School of Art & Design, and author of 'Olive Cotton: A life in photography', this talk will trace the modernist photographer’s history – from a childhood spent in Sydney’s northern suburbs, through to her years with fellow photographer Max Dupain, subsequent second marriage and relative artistic obscurity, to her renewed fame in later years.
Helen Ennis has recently been awarded the Magarey Medal for Biography for 'Olive Cotton: A life in photography'.
'Olive Cotton: A life in photography' will be available for signing and purchase after the talk.
Members can see the Olive Cotton work 'The photographer's shadow' currently on display in the 'Shadow Catchers' exhibition.
