Harold Cazneaux (1878-1953), was a giant in the history of Australian photography. ‘Through a Different Lens’ takes us back in time to Cazneaux’s soft focus Australia and gives us an insight into this significant photographer’s life.
For more than 50 years Cazneaux’s camera captured the romance and life of the world as it changed around him. Water was the perfect medium for his experimentations with creating mood, atmosphere and impression on the picture plane.
This exhibition of more than 50 original pieces presents this aspect of Cazneaux’s art, reflecting how water and Sydney Harbour fits within his work, his signature pictorial photographic style and his foray into modernism and abstract form.
