This touring exhibition, created by the Australian Museum, transports us back to a time when photography was revolutionising science, art and society. These images dating from 1857 to 1893 have been printed from the Australian Museum’s collection of glass plate negatives and are some of Australia’s earliest natural history photographs.

With rich, large-format prints, period cameras and related equipment, Capturing Nature brings to life the story of one of humankind’s greatest inventions and a Victorian obsession with immortality.

The gallery is open and practicing COVID-19 social distancing measures.
