Sue Ford was a pioneer of Australian photography, and one of the most important practitioners to emerge in the wave of 1970s feminist photographers. Celebrating her artistic life and career The National Gallery of Victoria will bring together key photographs, digital prints, collages and films created over an almost fifty-year period, as well as important archival materials. Ford’s work was both personal and political, and showed a fascination with private, shared and forgotten histories.
