Leading barrister Mark Tedeschi AM KC has had a long standing passion for photography. His second book of photography  entitled DECODING THE IMAGE was launched at the NSW State Library in mid December by retired state librarian and legendary educator Dr John Vallance and was very well attended .

Tracing his own paternal family line back to 20th century Italy, Tedeschi DECODING THE IMAGE is as much a homecoming as the latest voyage of Tedeschi’s continuing discovery through the eye of a lens.

He has been photographing people and their environments for more than 30 years in both Italy and Australia – in their public and private places.

Mark was appointed an Italian Cavaliere in in 2009 and a Member of the Order of Australia (AM) in 2013. This is his second photography book. His first, SHOOTING AROUND CORNERS, was a 2012 retrospective of his work.

Mark is also the author of four true-crime books, including one about Eugenia Falleni, a woman of Italian birth, who lived as a transgender man in Sydney in the early years of the 1900s, and who was charged in 1920 with the murder of his wife.

Mark has won numerous prizes and competitions for his photography and has enjoyed many solo and group exhibitions. He regularly gives lectures about his literary and photographic activities. 

DECODING THE  IMAGE is translated by Dr Maria Cristina Mauceri and published by Beagle Press – Australia’s premier art book publisher.
