Capturing Nature: Early photography at the Australian Museum 1857 – 1893

Australia’s earliest scientific photographs are revealed in a new exhibition, Capturing Nature.

Taken from the Australian Museum’s extensive archival collection of glass plate negatives, 65 large-format photographic prints showcase the scientific discoveries of Australian Museum scientists between the 1850s and 1890s. The exhibition also tells the story of the advent of photography in the young colony, less than 20 years after the birth of photography in Europe.

A touring exhibition created by the Australian Museum.
