In 1973, the Australian Centre for Photography was founded with the mission to establish photography as an art form. The following year ACP opened in its original premises in Paddington. In 1981, with the assistance of the Sir William Dobell Foundation, ACP moved to its current location on Oxford Street, Paddington. The ACP journal, Photofile, began in 1983 and is today, a leading voice on contemporary photomedia and ideas. In 2004, as a major recipient under the Visual Arts and Craft Strategy, ACP was identified as a leader in Australian contemporary visual culture. The digital revolution has seen the realm of photography rapidly evolve. This phenomenon has altered the landscape forever as technology, artistic expression and culture now exist in a state of flux. We embrace the ways that media, culture and communication figure in the cultural ecology and represent innovation, diversity, collaboration and excellence in the evolution and interpretation of the photographic medium.
