Lorrie Graham, photojournalist, began her photographic career as a cadet at the Sydney Morning Herald before moving to London in 1978 to work at the Observer. In 1981, she returned to Australia as the staff photographer at the National Times, winning the Graham Perkin Award in 1986, and in 1987 was picture editor and chief photographer at the Times on Sunday. A staff photographer at the Bulletin in 1988 and 1989, she then embarked on a successful freelance career. Since then her work has included photographic commissions, solo and group exhibitions, books and stills shoots for films. She has been published in newspapers and magazines including the Times, the Washington Post, the New York Times, Stern, Paris Match, Time, Newsweek, Rolling Stone, HQ Magazine, the Age, the Independent, the Independent Monthly, Australian Geographic, and The Monthly. Over the last four years she has completed many assignments for AusAID in the Asia-Pacific region. She consults a range of clients on the development and updating of photo library material in multiple formats and has developed a particular interest in how the internet, extended intranets, and social networks have changed the delivery of personal, corporate, government and agency messages. Her photographs are held in collections of the National Gallery of Australia, the Museum of Sydney and the State Library of NSW.
