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.
