 Many of these pictures were gathered during Reg’s years as a newspaper photographer, first for The West Australian, and then for The Independent in Perth. He completed the book in Sydney while working as photographer and picture editor for the Paul Hamlyn book publishing group. Most of these images have recently been incorporated in a digital book entitled In Black and White now available as a PDF .
