This education kit has been developed to help students understand and appreciate the medium of photography through key works in the collection of the Art Gallery of New South Wales. By focusing on a selection of 16 significant photographers and their work, we hope to provide an introduction to the diversity of photographic practice and related issues and ideas. For each artist in the selection, the kit includes an image of a key work (front panel), and image of a related supplementary work (back panel) by that or another photographer, statements by the photographer and or critic or commentator, and extended commentary and activities and questions for primary and secondary student. The student activities and questions provide a context for the use of photography as a resource for K-6 and 7-12 audiences.
