Carol Jerrems's gritty\, poetic and elusive images show peop le trying to find a new way of life and action in the 1970s. Her images hav e come to define a decade in Australia's history.

\n

In contrast to an earlier generation of internationally renowned magazine photojournalists s uch as David Moore\, the new generation did not seek commissioned commercia l or magazine work and took instead a low key intimate approach with a diar istic personal-documentary style of imagery focussed on themselves and thei r own\, mostly urban\, environments. Jerrems put her camera where the count er culture suggested\; women's liberation\, social inclusiveness for street youths and Indigenous people in the cities who were campaigning for justic e and land rights.

\n

Carol Jerrems was the first contemporary Austral ian woman photographer to have work acquired by a number of museums includi ng the National Gallery of Australia. The National Gallery holds an extensi ve archive of Jerrems photographs and film work gifted by the artist’s moth er Joy Jerrems in 1983. The current exhibition concentrates on prints signe d or formally exhibited\, by Carol Jerrems in her lifetime dating from 1968 -1978.
