A celebration of the best of Australian photojournalism, the Paper Tigers exhibition features sixty images from sixty of the best Australian photojournalists. The need for truthful journalism has never been more critical.

It is through the lens of these photographers that we understand and experience much of the world's events. Look back at the most critical moments through recent Australian history, and the images by which we remember them.
