Gallery 5

The photos in this gallery are those made by the colonial photographers in the late nineteenth centuries. These photos help to establish that a photographic landscape tradition of the arid and the semi-arid regions of northern South Australia existed in the late nineteen centuries.

This photographic tradition is prior to the paintings of Heysen and his photographic friends (ie. Joyner and Cazneau) in the 1920s, plus some made after the 1920s.

A history of the visual representations of the Flinders Ranges is here.
