Discover the candid street photography prolific on Sydney’s streets from the 1930s to 1960s. During the mid-20th century, commercial street photographers were a familiar sight on Sydney’s streets. The photographers captured everyday people as they strode by or stopped to pose. Taken against the vibrant background of the city streets, these photographs captured candid moments in the lives of millions of people. Subjects ranged from uniformed servicemen and women to postwar migrants exploring their new city and young couples out for a day in town. Following a hugely successful public call-out, the exhibition draws together photos from hundreds of private family albums. This extraordinary, largely unseen record of Sydney and its people is displayed alongside contemporary street photography by photomedia artist Anne Zahalka, capturing people on the streets of Sydney today.
