The Leica/CCP Documentary Photography Award is a biennial showcase of contemporary Australian documentary photography. It represents a unique, national initiative in support of documentary photography, providing a rare opportunity to assess the themes, styles and ideas that characterise this fascinating genre. The 2005 exhibition demonstrates the breadth of contemporary approaches to documentary practice from traditional black and white narratives through to vibrant colour recordings all of which have been achieved without digital manipulation. Themes range from shocking war imagery through politics, death and the everyday of Australian life. [gallery media]
