Carol Jerrems

Carol Jerrems (b.1949, d.1980) was the first contemporary
Australian woman photographer to have work acquired by
a number of museums including the National Gallery of
Australia in 1976. Jerrems put her camera where counter
culture suggested; women’s liberation, social inclusiveness
for street youths and Indigenous people in the cities who
were campaigning for justice and land rights. Her poetic and
elusive images show people trying to find a new way of life in
the 1970s.
