Nolan was 34 when this photograph was taken. He had just returned from his first trip overseas. He left Australia in August 1950, eventually making Cambridge his base from which to explore the continent. On this trip he visited Spain, Portugal, Italy and France. In January of 1951 an exhibition of his Central Australian works was held at the Redfern Gallery in London. The Tate Gallery purchased ‘Inland Australia’ from this exhibition. He arrived back in Australia in August of 1951.
This copy of a vintage photograph from the family photograph album was made by Sidney Nolan in 1967 and given to Storry Walton, who used it in the documentary he made for the ABC entitled 'This Dreaming Spinning Thing'. Alan Ashbolt worked with Walton on the documentary and George Johnston wrote the script.
