Photographic representations of Asylum seekers in Australian media
Grayson, Louise (2006) Photographic representations of Asylum seekers in Australian media. In The 2006 Jeanz/JEA annual conference, 2006, Auckland, NZ. (Unpublished)
This paper introduces three approaches to unlocking the degrees of “truth” within photographs published in newspapers by exploring the genres of Press photography, Photojournalism and Documentary photography. This is brought into context through a study of photographs appearing in The Australian newspaper during 2001 when the Norwegian freighter, the MV Tampa, rescued boat people whose vessel had sunk off the West Australian coast in 2001, and two months later the Children Overboard incident occurred.
