I went and had a look at the exhibition today - phantastic stuff :D

There are a few daguerreotypes,
images of people and places going back to 1840,
Sydney in 1920,
European places and people,
American icons (places and movie stars),
Photos from Max Dupain, Ansel Adams, Bill Brandt, Ray Man - too many to name.

If you have the opportunity, don't let it go but go and have a look.

Cheers,
CD
