As mentioned earlier this year Reportage is teaming up with two of our key partner venues, to bring you some inspiring and phenomenal exhibitions in 2014 for our Reportage Projects leading up to the next Festival in 2015.

We are happy to announce that Reportage is partnering with the Australian Centre for Photography this Spring to bring you an incredible exhibition season at the centre.

Launching August 29, 2014 at the Australian Centre for Photography are three ground breaking and courageous shows highlighting humanity’s paradoxes and social injustice through the poppy trails of Afghanistan heroin production and distribution to the shattering glimpses of South Africa’s transition post Apartheid, into the very private world’s of fallen American soldiers of war.

We are proud to present together with the ACP the following exhibitions:
