Street Photography – glimpses into everyday life during the Depression, Second World War and post war years
'Street Photography' explores the heyday of this once popular but now forgotten genre. During the mid-20th century, street photographers were a familiar sight on Sydney's streets, capturing moments in the lives of countless people. Explore this fascinating exhibition of candid images.
Before the days of Instagram and personal cameras, street photographers were a familiar part of city streets from the 1930s to the late 1950s. Developed in collaboration with nationally acclaimed photomedia artist Anne Zahalka, this exhibition includes an array drawn from a vast archive of black and white , post card sized images. Along with others on display at Hurstville Museum & Gallery, this exhibition reflects our shared local community, history and stories.
