Australian Life 2019

Take a journey through fire and serenity with this year’s Australian Life photography prize finalists.

From heart-achingly intimate portraits to sharp observations, the 28 finalist images paint a unique picture of our current juncture in time. Quiet beauty, fierce energy, drought, excess, defiance and valour – the documented moments represent a multitude of stories that make up Australian Life.
