Covid-19 restrictions gave photojournalist Tony Maniaty a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to recapture a golden era of French ‘humanist’ photography
Tony Maniaty is a photojournalist, author, and academic based in Sydney and Paris. His career has encompassed broadcasting, fiction writing, lecturing, and photography. He was Executive Producer of ABC’s 7.30 Report and Associate Professor of Creative Practice at the University of Technology Sydney. He holds a PhD in Media.
His latest project, Our Hearts Are Still Open, features images of Paris taken during the Covid pandemic. A photobook of his Paris images – with an essay by Raimond Gaita, philosopher and author of Romulus, My Father – will be published by StudioTettix later this year.
