Ink in the Blood maps the vivid life of Melbourne’s big newspapers and their deep imprint on the city, its culture and collective psyche.

From industrial workers steeped in ink to suited gentlemen presiding over their print empires, there were ranks of reporters, editors, photographers, typists, compositors, printers, truck-drivers and newsboys.

This massive industry forged essential connections as the life-blood of the city. It fostered a thirst for news and connection, and a sense of belonging in the evolving city, all keenly tied to papers flying hot off the presses throughout the day.

Ink in the Blood features work by Ron Tandberg, Angus O’Callaghan, Mark Strizic, Kenny Pittock and Stephen Armstrong.
