Brisbane Camera Group Seminar

By JOL Admin | 16 October 2008

Approximately 40 people from the Brisbane Camera Group recently came along to hear staff from the John Oxley Library talk about the library's photographic collections.  A range of photographs was on display on the day, from ambrotypes to daguerreotypes, as well as collodian prints, photographic albums and panoramas.  Sir Robert Philp's Townsville Album was especially admired by the participants, because of its beautifully illustrated pages.

Lydia Egunnike, Senior Conservator at the State Library, gave a very interesting session on how to care for photographic collections.

The afternoon was a great success, with a wonderful outcome for the library being various offers of photographic donations from the participants. Bernard Milford, Secretary of the Brisbane Camera Group, had this to say about the event, “I’d just like to say how much we all enjoyed the talk ... and how impressed we were with how comprehensive, well-thought-out and interactive it was.”
