What Makes A Great Photograph?
Centre for Contemporary Photography

Sun 19 Mar, 2pm
NGV International
Melbourne Art Book Fair discussion space
Ground Level

Free entry

Images have the capacity to change the world, or fade into obscurity.

Join Centre for Contemporary Photography (CCP)  at the NGV to reflect on the inscrutable and pertinent question: What makes a great photograph? Five Melburnians make a quick case for a photograph that moves them. As part of the NGV’s Melbourne Art Book Fair 2017, CCP presents a spirited event for which a sparkling panel have chosen one photograph each and will explain to the crowd what makes theirs great … with only five minutes each.

This is a time for divergent opinions and discussion from the floor!
