Exhibition at the Australian War Memorial
An exhibition highly recommended.
The Australian War Memorial in Canberra presents thought provoking exhibition titled After The War.
The curators have delivered a fantastic exhibition that explores the legacy of the First World War – with the emphasis on the people involved and their families over the hundred years since.
Among many other precious artifacts, the exhibition includes a spread of photography – including a panel of one hundred portraits, vernacular photographs and a selection taken by known photographers, Cazneaux, May & Mina Moore, David Moore, Laurence Aberhart, John F Williams and more.
Pick a quiet day as the exhibition is very sombre and does what the institution was meant to do; to be a memorial to the people involved in these horrible wars.
Congratulations to Magda Keaney the chief curator for this exhibition; her last in Australia before she departed to be the Senior Curator Photographs at the National Portrait Gallery London.
The photographs above represent only a portion of the exhibition – there’s much more.
