Shifting Focus: Colonial Australian Photography 1850-1920

Edited by Anne Maxwell and Josephine Croci

The essays collected here examine a wide range of photographs produced in Australia and the Pacific between 1850 and 1920. Combining the scholarship of twenty-two Australian Art historians, Historians, Anthropologists and Curators, the collection establishes photography’s documentary and artistic role and offers rich, new insights into the ways in which photography helped shape modern Australian society in it early and arguably most formative years.
