Join Greg and Sylvia Ray while they discuss their research and work to collect and capture a photographic record of the Hunter’s social history.

Their eight books include ‘Newcastle Slideshow’, which features images from slides of events from the 50’s to the 80’s that were significant for local photographers. Their latest book, ‘The Hunter Region in The Great War’ acknowledges the sacrifice of local service men and women and the impact on their families at home.

The Power of the Picture is part of History illuminated, Lake Macquarie’s inaugural festival of history. The full program is available on the Lake Macquarie website.
