 Are newspapers dead?

This second book on Photography of The Age by Kathleen Whelan looks at the impact of the digital age on professional photographers and again highlights the essential role they play in bringing to the people what is important; socially, politically and historically.

The Photography of The Age also provides historical context of some of the most famous images published, why they are chosen as well as technical information from the photographers themselves on how they produced such memorable images.
