Gary Ramage's exhibition 'Afghanistan' purchased by the Australian War Memorial

Gary Ramage's exhibition 'Afghanistan' has been purchased in its entirety by the Australian War Memorial for the institution's permanent collection. Upon news of the purchase, Gary decided to donate his Hasselblad 500CM camera, which he used to make the photographs in 2011, to the War Memorial to accompany the prints. Gary also donated one print from the series as a sign of gratitude for the large acquisition and to Brendan Nelson (Director of the AWM) for his contribution to the opening of the show and for writing the exhibition foreword.
