Tim Handfield was a leading exponent of New Colour Photography in Australia in the 70s, collected for aesthetic as much as documentary reasons. As the director of a colour lab for over 20 years he pioneered and introduced new technologies, and is the master-printer behind and advising other artists. He was also among the first to adopt digital photography in the 90s.

I know very little about the 1970s Australian New Colour Photography movement. Was there a movement akin to the American one? If so, then the photographic art historians don't seem to have written about it.
