Science and Photography – Growing Up Together
On this episode of GLAMcity, Anna and Chelsea dive into a curious archive at the Australian Museum. In the late 19th century, the museum started to experiment with a strange new technology to capture nature. Zoologist and expeditionist, Gerard Krefft began taking photographs of animal specimens for the museum’s collection.
Vanessa Finney, Manager, Archives, Rare books & Library Collections at the Australian Museum, joins us to talk about the collection, exhibition and book!
