Rise of the Right

More than 90 of the best press photographs in Australia will go on show at the WA Maritime Museum tomorrow, Saturday 7 July.

The Nikon-Walkley Awards for Excellence in Photojournalism recognise the work of photographers across a range of genres – from news and sport to portraiture and photographic essays.

This exhibition features the finalists in the 2017 The Walkley Awards, the highest honour in Australian journalism.

These photos will make you re-think the way you see the world around you.

They encompass a range of stories covering the tragedy of war, the drama of sport, the theatre of politics, and the lives of ordinary people with touching portraits taken in our backyards and in the furthest corners of the globe.

The exhibition will run from Saturday 7 July 2018 to Sunday 2 September 2018 at the WA Maritime Museum in Fremantle. The Museum is open 9:30am – 5:00pm. Normal admission fees apply.

The exhibition is presented by the Walkley Foundation, the Media Alliance, Nikon and Epson.
