New book, 137 pages. The 'Capturing Brisbane' project explores the development of professional photography in the City between 1855 and 1901. This book provides biographies of more than 200 commercial photographers and studios operating in Brisbane during this time. It reveals where they were from, and the dates and places they worked, combined with the stories of their struggles, successes, sometimes their tragedies, and the legacy they left. Whether you are an historian, librarian, archivist, genealogist, photograph collector, antique dealer, or more likely, just someone with an interest in Brisbane's social history, I trust you will find this is a valuable contribution to the social history of photography in early Brisbane, and a useful addition to your bookshelf.
