Festivals and Celebrations

1 Aug 2021 Daily Event

Mervyn Bishop: The Exhibition features iconic photographs that derive from his career as a photojournalist, alongside personal images of family and friends and intimate portraits of members of the Aboriginal community.

The National Film and Sound Archive of Australia (NFSA) celebrates Mervyn Bishop, one of Australia’s most prolific and influential photographers, with a new exhibition.

Mervyn Bishop’s images of culture, politics and people have significantly influenced the collective understanding of Australia’s history. Spanning the past 60 years, the exhibition provides a fascinating insight into Bishop’s life and work.

This exhibition is drawn from the Art Gallery of New South Wales (AGNSW) collection, the artist’s private archive, and enriched by sound and moving image from the NFSA.
