Arts Freedom Australia rally

Founded in 2004, Arts Freedom Australia in a non-profit umbrella body representing Australia's major photographic associations as well as many individual photographers. Arts Freedom Australia was formed because of an industry-wide concern about the increasing amount of bureaucracy and red-tape turning Australia into a land of forbidden horizons for image makers. Arts Freedom Australia is tired of photographers being treated as terrorists, criminals and predators. The chairman of Arts Freedom Australia is leading landscape photographer Ken Duncan. He is joined by some of Australia's most celebrated photographers in the fight to see the return of some basic common sense to our nation's laws.

Photography in Australia is under attack and photographers and other image makers are losing their rights to freedom of expression. There are similar trends in countries like the United States.

Arts Freedom Australia demands fair access for all to iconic public locations like Sydney Harbour, Bondi Beach and Uluru.

If photographers are making no more impact on the environment than the general tourist, permits and permissions should NOT be required.

I have created this gallery to highlight this cause by showing you some images of the rally which took place opposite the Sydney Opera House on Sunday 29 August 2010.
