Major new photography donation

A generous anonymous benefactor recently gifted 121 twentieth century and contemporary Australian photographs to the museum, through the Commonwealth government’s Cultural Gifts Program.

The works collectively represent an overview of photographic trends and movements in Australia over the last 70 years, having been produced by artists including Peter Dombrovskis, Trent Parke, Lewis Morley, Rose Parkin and George Farrell, and Ingeborg Tyssen. This gift significantly advances the museum’s holding of Australian photography.
