How Digital Technology Killed the Photography Star!
6pm Thursday May 21
Dinner talk by Dr Kurt Brereton
Pine Rivers Art Gallery
, Queensland

With the rise of digital cameras and editing, what’s happening to the art of photography? New technologies have radically changed our idea of what a photograph is and what a photographer does. Join Dr Kurt Brereton as he discusses the changing nature of photography – what it is today and what it may be in the future - and the impacts on journalism, advertising and art. Dr Brereton is Adjunct Professor at the University of Technology, Sydney and an educator in the fields of new media, design, humanities and the visual arts.
