Join guest speakers Simone Rosenbauer, Lyndal Irons and Todd McMillan, as we delve inside the typology of photography with our new event series RECORD.

This series is a unique opportunity to exchange ideas about photography, ask and answer questions with like-minded people, and enjoy some beers and the best burgers in Sydney from Burgers Anonymous.

Come and discuss how and why we categorise photographs and photographers? Documentary, art, commercial, self-taught, graduate and hobbyist, all boxes used to describe and conform images and their makers. How important are these definitions today and without them would we know where we belong?

With no division between invited speakers and the audience, RECORD is a new series of events designed to be audience-led. Register online, submit your question on the theme and participate in a night of round-table discussion. The event will be recorded and transcribed for the ACP’s online audiences to share in the discussion.

The inaugural event's topic, The Typology of Photography is inspired by our latest exhibition Shadows are cast by things and people, curated by The Heavy Collective.  

Who can take part?

We are looking for audience members who are ready to engage with new and different viewpoints, as well as share ideas and experiences. 

How can I take part?

Simply secure your ticket through website. Seats are limited so be quick. You can submit your question in the notes section during check-out, or we can following up via email closer to the date

About Lyndal Irons

Lyndal Irons is a Sydney-based photographer and writer focused on local reportage interested in seeking out parts of Australian society that are familiar, accessible, yet not often closely encountered.  By recording social histories and building legacies using photographs and words, her work encourages curiosity and a deeper connection to daily environment.

Her work has been exhibited in solo exhibitions at the State Library of New South Wales, the Australian Centre for Photography, and as part of the Elizabeth Street Gallery (2014), the Sydney Life Photographic Competition (2011, 2012), the National Portrait Prize (2017), the Bowness Prize at the Monash Gallery of Art (2015) and Tweed Regional Gallery for the Olive Cotton Award for Portraiture (2015).

About Todd McMillan

Todd McMillan is a Sydney-based artist and lecturer at the University of Technology, Sydney. McMillan’s photographic and video work addresses the futility of the individual in the face of nature – hopelessness confronting the sublime. His recent work has delved into the early history of photography, reviving the processes and subject matter of the 19th century such as the cyanotype. McMillan was a recipient of the 2006 Helen Lempriere Travelling Scholarship in 2006.
