Cazneaux by the water
Enter the world of photographer Harold Cazneaux, 100 years ago.
Photographer Harold Cazneaux (1878-1953) is a giant in the history of Australian photography.
In the early 1900s he became a passionate advocate for photography as art rather than a mechanical recording process.
This exhibition of more than 50 original works presents a new dimension to Cazneaux's work, reflecting how the water and Sydney Harbour offered him a space to explore mood, light, atmosphere and life in his signature pictorial photographic style.
Image: Sydney Harbour scenes: boy on a raft by Harold Cazneaux, 1905. Donated through the Australian Government’s Cultural Gifts Program by Anne Christoffersen, in memory of the artist. ANMM Collection 00054641.
