In Memory Of Jack Lang

1975. Series of five vintage silver gelatin photographs on Kodalith transfer film, each signed with faint series title and date in pencil on accompanying original backing, 20.1 x 25.2cm (approx. each).

This series was photographed from a television documentary film on Jack Lang in 1975, the year he died. The images are mostly of the opening of the Sydney Harbour Bridge in 1932, and include the protester Captain Francis de Groot, who while riding his horse, cut the ceremonial ribbon before Premier Lang could do so.

John Thomas Lang (1876-1975) was an Australian politician who served twice as the 23rd Premier of NSW, from 1925 to 1927 and again from 1930 to 1932. He was dismissed by the Governor of New South Wales, Sir Philip Game, at the climax of the 1932 constitutional crisis and resoundingly lost the resulting election and subsequent elections as Leader of the Opposition.
