A Different Time: The Expedition Photographs of Herbert Basedow1903–1928

OUT OF STOCK

Herbert Basedow was an anthropologist, geologist and medical doctor who used photography to document his expeditions into central and northern Australia in the early decades of the twentieth century.

A Different Time: The Expedition Photographs of Herbert Basedow 1903–1928 draws on the National Museum of Australia's rich collection of Basedow's photographic work.

These revealing, sometimes confronting images provide a fascinating historical record of the people and places he encountered, and life in remote Australia in the early 1900s.
