This is the first international monograph of the photographs of John Williams (Sydney 1933 – 2016 Hobart) whose work, outside his own country, remains undiscovered. Inspired to take up photography by “The Family of Man” exhibition which went to Sydney in 1959, Williams was, from the outset, a street photographer in the strict sense: he walked the streets at random, waiting for the right moment to press the button of his already prepared camera. Besides amounting a mass of photographs, he established one of the first photography galleries in Australia and was the first Head of Photography at Sydney College of the Arts.
