George Lipman was born in 1933 in Sydney. He started work as a messenger at the Sydney Morning Herald as a 17 yr old and worked at that job for a year before joining the photographic department.
For the next 29 years he photographed people and places of the time, from the famous to the ordinary folk in the suburbs.
In 1968 we won Australia's highest journalism for Excellence Award, the Walkley for the best News Picture of 1968. The picture showing planes flying at the speed of sound was featured on the front cover of the Sydney Morning Herald.
For the last 30 years George has lived with his wife Marianne in Scarborough.
George Lipman is listed on the wall of the Redcliffe Wall of Fame:
