Summary of project:

“Charles Page is one of Australia’s best itinerant documentary photographers. Cross Section: The documentary photography of Charles Page focuses on 40 years of his superb black and white photography, through five major themes: His work for the International Red Cross in war zones includes images considered too disturbing to print at the time. He was also the only photographer to gain admission to the infamous, now closed, Boggo Road Prison in Brisbane. On the other hand, his Antarctic images are amongst the most sublime of this subject.”
