In memoriam: Joyce Olga Evans (1929-2019)

April 2019

 

We have lost a pioneer and legend of Australian photography.

We were blessed to have known her. What a life. What an incredible human being.

A tribute to Joyce Evans will appear on this website in due time.

I am so so sad at her loss. All my love…

Marcus xx

 

Two new books will be published after Joyce’s passing: “We Had Such High Hopes: Student activism and the Peace Movement 1947-56” which features Joyce’s stories of going behind the Iron Curtain to photograph in 1949 and 1951, protests against the atom bomb, and the beginning of civil rights protests after the Second World War in Australia (published by Australian Scholarly Publishing edited by Jenny Zimmer); and a large publication of her own work written by Sasha Grishin.

A fitting tribute to a pioneer and legend of Australian photography.
