Photos. By Fairfax.

Yesterday, the Fairfax media group, owner of Australia’s The Age (Melbourne) and Sydney Morning Herald newspapers, announced it will cut 80 jobs across its newsrooms, including 30 photojournalists. It will look to outsource much of the work as it focusses on the ‘continuing transformation of the business’.

The photographers at Fairfax are some of the best in the business. Below is a small selection of just some of their work, and you can see more at The Age photo gallery or The SMH photo gallery.
