The Australian Culture bans photos in public places as Photographers fight to preserve Artistic Expression
In an ever evolving world of communication, technology, and networking, it seems only natural that society becomes more open and accepting of artistic expression. However, it boggles the mind that the Australia Society is taking so many steps back towards the medieval days.
The Aussie Culture has been dropping the Ban Hammer on the use of Photography in public places. More and more, artists are stripped of their right of artistic expression.
Places like Bondi Beach, Sydney Harbour, and Uluru are legally off-limits from photographers. Even renowned panoramic photographer, Ken Duncan, was barred from taking photos of his own children at a swimming pool.
If this trigger-happy, iron-fisted styling of ruling is permitted to continue, not only photographers, but artists of all sorts will face unfair lockdowns. Imagine one day not being allowed to Photograph, Draw, or Paint images of the Sydney Opera House!
It may seem like a silly idea, but it is not as far off as it seems. To this end, Ken Duncan, along with many of Australia’s leading photographers are leading the charge this August 29th in Sydney.
