Exposed: Human Rights & The Environment | Glenn Lockitch 2018 - Exhibition

This exhibition covers the twenty-five-year career of one of Australia’s leading photojournalists. Glenn Lockitch has witnessed key historical events and the impact of globalisation on local communities and the environment. He has been on the ground in Asia, the Pacific and Africa, as well as the Antarctic seas. Lockitch has documented the ongoing human rights issues of Indigenous Australians, anti-nuclear protests against the French in Tahiti (1995), and the anti-whaling campaign of the Sea Shepherd (2009-17).

Exposed examines the role of photojournalism in shifting the consciousness of contemporary globalised society. Lockitch’s series of images emphasise the power of communicating social issues in our everyday and increases our awareness of the interplay of both subliminal and overt interpretations. Drawing from Lockitch’s extensive archive and current work, the exhibition considers the evolution of photojournalism from analogue film and published media to the free flow of images on the Internet and social media.
