Photojournalism Now: Friday Round Up – 7 June 2019

This week on Photojournalism Now: Friday Round Up – it seems incredibly appropriate in a week when freedom of the press in Australia has come under attack to feature an exhibition of the 2018 Walkley award-winning photographs (our premier journalism awards). When the Australian Federal Police raided our national broadcaster, the ABC, and the home of a News Corp journalist, democracy itself was threatened. Let’s remember how important journalism is to our right as citizens to be informed. On the same theme, this week also features Patrick Brown’s exhibition on the plight of the Rohingya, No Place on Earth, showing at the Bronx Documentary Centre in New York.
