Location: Photography gallery
The photography gallery is dedicated to the display of the Art Gallery of NSW’s 4500-strong collection of photographs. The collection covers the inception of the medium in the 19th century until now.
Three exhibitions open each year in this gallery. Focusing on Australian and international photography, they present the work of individual artists and groups of artists, and explore themes and specific periods in photographic history.
The latest exhibition is Bill Henson: cloud landscapes.
