Strike a pose, there’s nothing to it. In the image conscious 21st Century photographs shape the world.

How has the development of the visual changed, informed and shaped society? How do historians use art and photography to inform their research? Who were the original mad men of the advertising industry?

Long before the Kardashians, the rich and famous manipulated their images and throughout time people form all backgrounds and cultures have created their view of the world through visual representations.

History Week 2013 will bring the past into view through the frame of images.

The History Council of NSW has been running History Week for 16 years to share stories that show history is interesting, relevant and all around us.

Across NSW nearly one hundred events will celebrate the history of images.
