ABOUT THE SPEAKERS

  • Joy Hughes will focus on 19th and 20th century picture sources in NSW and the national institutions in Canberra, with a brief reference to researching 21st century pictures, collections in other states and some English institutions. The agonies of copyright and reproduction rights cannot be ignored. And if a relevant picture cannot be found for a publication, are there options? Joy Hughes is a professional historian who has undertaken extensive picture research to inform the restoration of heritage buildings and gardens and for reports, books and exhibition.
  • Graham Shirley will focus on the leading Australian sources of moving images created since the origins of cinema in the 1890s. He will address the sources’ areas of speciality, deal with copyright-controlled footage as well as ‘orphan’ works, identify where footage is duplicated between organisations, and will include the sometimes-complex issues of access and reproduction. Graham Shirley was a director, writer, and researcher on Australian historical documentaries. He has published on Australian film history.
