Through a different lens – Cazneaux by the Water

A stunning exhibition of photographs by Harold Cazneaux (1878-1953), a giant in the history of Australian photography, opens at the South Australian Maritime Museum on 16 June 2017. Through a different lens – Cazneaux by the Water takes visitors back in time to Cazneaux’s soft focus Australia and provides a fascinating glimpse into the photographer’s life.

Cazneaux’s photographs include poetic river and Sydney Harbour scenes featuring larger muscular industrial waterscapes, boating views, ferry wharves, wharf workers and bridge views. There are also river and coastal landscapes from his various travels back to South Australia including Port Adelaide, Port Pirie and along the Murray River

Through a different lens – Cazneaux by the Water is an Australian National Maritime Museum touring exhibition and is on display at the South Australian Maritime Museum from 16 June – 15 October 2017.
