Most of us have a little more time to reflect these days and before things escape from under us as we head into the world once more, take some time out for quiet contemplation and spend a little time in "Twenty" which opens on the 15th of June 2020.

"Twenty" is exactly that 20 years of Queensland's best photographic moments, some famous and unforgettable to jog our memories, and some mundane moments captured in someone's life or daily chores which have been carefully archived, courtesy of the good work of the State Library, who has organised this exhibition online for us all.

There is an additional incentive to delving into this photographic exhibition. On Wednesday the 17th of June, we have the added joy of having Kerry O'Brien, an award-winning journalist, talking to us about this exhibition and its photographic exhibits. To register for the web event, go here.

This exhibition will take you back to moments in Queensland's history which stand apart; the floods of 2011 are a recent memory; the beauty of Queenslanders and some of the architectural features that distinguish them; the lives and times of the Indigenous Aboriginal groups who have inhabited these lands for so many years; the joys of jobs carried out every day, laughter and sadness; nature in full bloom and decay. Scenes which will leave us with something to ponder and to keep in our current lives.

There is so much in the collection of some 200 photographs which form part of the exhibition. For more information, go here.
