'This collection represents such moments in Australian history - when the sublime opportunity combines with the instinct, intelligence, creativity and speed of the press photographer to create a memorable picture.  Many of them present stark tragedy.  The press photographer is inevitably called upon to witness the excess of man-made and natural violence that make news - floods, fires, collisions, earthquakes, explosions.  But there are other moments in history - inspiring, important, thrilling and heart-warming moments that tell us something of significance about our country and our human condition.

Famous Australian News Pictures is edited and introduced by Harry Gordon.  As a reporter, foreign correspondent, sports writer, a war correspondent and editor for five years of Australia's largest-selling newspaper, The Sun-News Pictorial, Melbourne, he has witnessed many great news events and has seen many of the great pictures in this book as they emerged from the darkroom.'
