A CALLOUT TO RESIDENTS FOR IMAGES TAKEN BY STREET PHOTORAPHERS IN THE ILLAWARRA

Leading Australian photo-media artist Anne Zahalka is creating a new chapter of street photography with images collected from residents of Wollongong and the Illawarra. These images will be included in Snapped! Street Photography in the Illawarra, an exhibition by Anne Zahalka at Wollongong Art Gallery 11 December 2021 - 1 May 2022. We are searching for original photographs taken by commercial street photographers from the 1930s-60s in the Illawarra and elsewhere. Look through your personal family albums, biscuit tins and shoeboxes to find these historic street photos. Some may also have been taken overseas before the subjects migrated to Australia and we would be very keen to include these as the commercial street photographer was ubiquitous worldwide.
