Capturing Nature: early photography at the Australian Museum 1857-1893
The latest exhibition at the Australian Museum titled Capturing Nature: early photography at the Australian Museum 1857-1893, features never-before-seen images printed from the museum’s collection of glass plate negatives. These are some of Australia’s earliest natural history photographs. European photography was only about twenty years old, and the colony of New South Wales, not much older.
We had the pleasure of speaking to Kim McKay AO, Director and CEO of the Australian Museum about the new exhibition. Kim’s also a graduate and Luminary of UTS, and is widely known as a co-founder of Clean Up Australia and Clean Up The World. She’s worked at the Discovery Channel and National Geographic, and co-authored a number of environmental books, so she’s clearly a keen advocate for science and the environment.
