Sit. Pose. Snap. Brisbane Portrait Photography 1850 – 1950
Sit. Pose. Snap. Brisbane Portrait Photography 1850 – 1950 explores the evolution of studio portrait photography in Brisbane. Drawing from Marcel Safier’s private collection, the exhibition presents original photographs, which feature hundreds of Brisbane residents. Beginning with the 19th century’s formal studio sittings, the exhibition follows a century’s worth of photographic changes, finishing with the relaxed photographs of the mid-20th century.
