Delve into the fascinating stories behind some of Australia’s most iconic photographs in Behind the Truth, a new travelling display opening at the Port Macquarie Library from Monday 1st December - Thursday 11th December.
The exhibition features 10 iconic images from the State Library’s unrivalled collections that question the role of truth in photography.
“War, politics, daily life… photographs can capture history in different ways, but they can’t always be used as truthful historical resources,” says Louise Tegart, Manager, Exhibitions at the State Library.
The exhibition illustrates the duplicity behind some very famous imagery.
Even renowned Australian photographer Max Dupain cannot escape the scrutiny, with the truth behind one of his most famous images revealed in this exhibition.
“The Sunbaker has come to epitomise the quintessential Aussie male, but the model (Hal Salvage) was actually a British architectural engineer with a pronounced English accent,” says Ms Tegart.
