Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre presents
Carol Jerrems: Photographic Artist A National Gallery of Australia Exhibition

Photographer Carol Jerrems burst on to the Melbourne arts scene in the 1970s, making a name for herself with photos of people living on the outer-edges of society. She died young, aged 30, but not without dedicating a solid decade to her craft. Her images have come to define a decade in Australia’s history.

Jerrems was part of a new generation of creatives who took a low-key, intimate approach to their practice with a diaristic, personal documentary style of imagery focused on themselves and their own, mostly urban, environments.

Jerrems put her camera where the counter culture suggested; women’s liberation, social inclusiveness for street youths and Indigenous people in the cities who were campaigning for justice and land rights.
