Capturing Nature – Australian Museum exhibition

A unique exhibition showcasing early photography at the Australian Museum between 1857 – 1893.

Exhibition opens 16 February 2019.

Never-before-seen images dating from 1857 to 1893 have been printed from the Australian Museum’s collection of glass plate negatives and are Australia’s earliest natural history photographs. Sitting at the nexus of science and art, they tell both the story of pioneering research as well as the advent of photography in the young colony less than 10 years after the birth of photography in Europe.
