Snapshots of the Museum

More than 4500 images of the collections and a diverse range of public programs were taken during the year. These included photographs of local and interstate communities, school groups, significant public and corporate events, as well as images for the media and external publications.

Three feature projects were:

  • object photography for a new range of Museum publications and merchandise, such as high-quality boxed sets of cards, books for the 125th anniversary of the Murray River paddle steamer, the PS Enterprise, souvenir books about the Sundowner Bean Car and Ernabella batiks, and children's publications
  • photographic documentation for the joint AIATSIS/Museum project of artefact production by Roy Barker, an Aboriginal man from Lightning Ridge in New South Wales
  • the development of a photographic record of quilts in the National Historical Collection, including quilts from the 1988 Bicentennial, Country Women's Association and the McColive collections.
