Postle is one of Australia’s greatest and most highly decorated photographers. For 50 years he took stunning pictures of Australian news, sport, entertainment, tragedy and the small moments in ordinary people’s lives. He began his career when the new medium of television was threatening press photography’s dominance of the visual news image. Postle helped lead the way for his generation of photographers to redefine the craft and prove that a picture could not only be worth a thousand words, but sometimes kilometres of videotape or gigabytes of digital data.
