From a portrait of Yassmin Abdel-Magied to a professional kangaroo shooter posing with his catch, the works of the 116 semi-finalists in this year’s Moran contemporary photographic prize capture the spirit of Australian life. The judge, Cheryl Newman, says the images encapsulate ‘the political and the poetic, the intimate and the everyday’. The winner of the award will be announced on 8 May, with a prize of $50,000.
