Explore the rich experimentation and innovation of the Australian Museum’s latest exhibition, Capturing Nature. Travel back into a time when photography was revolutionising science, art and society.
These never-before-seen images dating from 1857 to 1893 have been printed from the Australian Museum’s collection of glass plate negatives and are some of 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 20 years after the birth of photography in Europe.
Explore the rich experimentation and innovation of the exhibition and engage with the Museum Maker series supported by Archie Rose, hands-on photography workshops, night talks in collaboration with Head On, demonstrations of early photographic techniques and much more.
