ABOUT MAGGIE DIAZ

American born, Maggie Diaz was a trailblazer for Australian women photographers. Diaz arrived in Melbourne alone and on a one-way ticket in 1961 and soon established herself as one of our leading commercial photographers. No small feat for a time when women were placed firmly in front of the camera, prompting The Age newspaper of 1964 to report that ‘A series of photographs which form part of the interior design of the new 3AW studios in the Southern Cross Plaza are the work of a woman.’
