You are invited to attend the South Australian Photographic Federation's Annual Exhibition at the Hamra Centre Library Gallery to see the best photos of the year, taken by South Australia's best photographers.

There are 29 camera clubs in South Australia who are affiliated with the SAPF. The clubs have a focus on fun and friendship and, of course, all things photography. From these camera clubs are the exhibition entrants.

The exhibition will be open for 2 weeks from Monday the 28th April, up to and including Monday the 12th May. Opening hours will be during normal library opening times

Exhibition opening times:

Monday, Tuesday, Friday: 10am to 6pm
Wednesday: 8am to 6pm
Thursday: 10am to 8pm
Saturday and Sunday: 1pm to 4pm


Also on display will be a very special exhibition of historical photos to celebrate the 175th Anniversary of Photography.

In 1839, Niépce, Daguerre and Fox-Talbot developed the first photographic processes. Back then, no one would have thought that 175 years later, nearly everyone in the world would own a camera and that, on a daily basis, we are surrounded by billions of photos.

South Australia has a strong and long history in photography.

Some of the earliest landscape photos ever recorded in Australia were taken in South Australia. The SAPF will open their archives and display some rare images; some which date back to 1840. This very special event is being organised by the SAPF Historian, Howard Speed in the very popular "About Time - South Australia's History Festival", which happens each May.

The Auditorium is wheelchair and pram friendly. There is also designated disability parking in the library carpark which is directly behind the Hamra Centre building.
