Viewfinder: Photography from the 1970s to Now takes a unique look at the journey of Australian documentary photography over the last five decades, from black and white images to the vibrant high definition images of today.

Drawing exclusively from the vast photography collection at the National Library of Australia, the 125 images in this exhibition reveal a changing Australia.

Viewfinder also focusses on the evolving nature of photography as a way of recording our lives and highlights the significant technological advances and increasing diversity of styles, approaches and techniques utilised by photographers over the past five decades. 

Viewfinder: Photography from the 1970s to Now will be open in the Exhibition Gallery from 16 September 2022 until 13 March 2023.
