Roger Scott

b. 1944

Roger Scott (b. 1944) is a freelance documentary photographer known in particular for his images of protests and rallies held in Sydney in the 1970s. Employed in a photographic lab in North Sydney, Scott has said he would often make excuses to slip away from work so as to go and take photos at ‘demos’, some of his best-known images documenting anti-Vietnam War protests, land rights rallies and Jack Mundey’s Green Bans. He printed Carol Jerrems’s work and became a friend of hers. The book Roger Scott: From the street was published in 2001, and a retrospective of his work, The 1970s: A decade of Protest was shown at the Museum of Sydney in 2008.
