The Presidents: from JFK to Obama

Thursday 17 April 2014 to Friday 25 July 2014


Leading American photojournalist David Burnett is one of the very few photographers to have photographed all US Presidents since John F. Kennedy.

From iconic statesmen such as John F Kennedy, to the downfall of Richard Nixon, and the significance of America's election of Barack Obama, these moments of history have reverberated around the world. Spanning five decades, Burnett's images are markers of time and provide a fascinating, up-close and unique perspective.

It is free admission for this exhibition at the Margaret Whitlam Galleries, Female Orphan School, open Thursdays and Fridays from 10am - 4pm and Saturday 10 May from 10am - 4pm.

An Australian Centre for Photography Touring Exhibition.
