Andrew Quilty: Foreign correspondence and photography in the Instagram age (Student event)

An event especially for students. A camera and a sense of adventure have taken freelance photojournalist Andrew Quilty from Sydney to the global stage. He’s now based in Afghanistan, and his coverage of the conflict there has featured in The New York Times, The Washington Post and TIME, and last year won him Australian journalism’s highest honour, the 2016 Gold Walkley. In this special event for students, Andrew will speak with Heather Faulkner about his photojournalism career. Over casual drinks they’ll discuss freelancing, social media’s role in the photographer’s kit, and show some of his favourite images.

This event is presented in partnership with Nikon Australia.


This event is free for students and $10 for others — but you must register (even students).
