Centre for Contemporary Photogrpahy

Through exhibitions, education and publishing, Centre for Contemporary Photography (CCP) places contemporary Australian photography and video in conversation with significant historical and international practice, expanding the context for current Australian lens-based arts. We support artists by providing educational experiences for aspiring creators, exhibition opportunities for early-career artists, commissioned research projects for mid-career artists, and opportunities for established artists to experiment and take risks. CCP has played a pivotal role in the development of lens-based arts and public engagement with photography.

Exhibitions are restricted by time, but the exhibition catalogue lives on; both as a piece of design and “time capsule” representing the social, political, personal and cultural concerns formed within an art exhibition. The exhibition catalogue reflects the concerns of yesterday and today, which inevitably reframe tomorrow. CCP presents a community of creatives — designer, artist, writer, editor, curator — involved in producing a selection of catalogues from its 35-year history
