*ONLINE* Analogue Iran by Ali MC

In August and September 2019, documentary photographer Ali MC spent four weeks capturing the diversity of Iran through black and white 35mm film. The result is Analog Iran, an online exhibition which explores the diversity of a country that is often stereotyped in the media.  From the border of Afghanistan to the bustling metropolis of Tehran, these photographs bring to life the everyday lives of Iranian people.  Ali’s work shows the tension between the hospitality and graciousness of the Iranian people, and the constant political and economic pressures of daily life.

Join us for this wonderful presentation of his stunning photographs, and tales of his travels through this amazing part of the world.

Author Encounters

*ONLINE* Barry Jones – What Is To Be Done

When Sleepers, Wake! was released in Australia almost four decades ago, it immediately became influential around the world. Now its author, the polymath and former politician Barry Jones, turns his attention to what has happened since — especially to politics, health, and our climate in the digital age — and to the challenges faced by increasingly fragile democracies and public institutions. What Is to Be Done is a long-awaited work from Jones on the challenges of modernity and what must be done to meet them.

Barry Jones was born in Geelong, Victoria, and educated at Melbourne High School and the University of Melbourne, where he studied arts and law. At the age of 87, he is officially recognised as a national living treasure.
