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.
