Curator’s Choice: Nineteenth Century Photography in the Pacific

Past Event

Wednesday, 7 June 2017 - 6pm to 7:30pm

By the end of the nineteenth century photographers had found their way into most areas of the Pacific. But they had not done so in great numbers. Occasionally work done outside of the studio was made on a short cruise at the photographer’s own expense but most work was done by administrators, missionaries, settlers, sailors, artists and scientists.  Join Senior Curator, Geoff Barker in a discussion about some of the physical realities and technical limitations faced by photographers. Rare original albums and photographs will be on display.
