Project Description

This project will produce a landmark study of changing public perceptions and laws concerning public photography in Victoria and the impact on photographers and Australian society. The study will examine the impact of new photographic technologies, and will investigate how public debate can best be informed and directed towards the optimal outcomes for all stakeholders: photographers, individuals, governments and companies. The study will focus on Victoria in order to provide a detailed and nuanced account of the transformations in public perceptions of photography, and the social and legislative impacts of such transformations.
