Hear from Gold Walkley award-winning journalist Kerry O’Brien as he looks at State Library’s astonishing visual archive of Queensland as part of Twenty: two decades of Queensland photography online exhibition.

Kerry will reflect on Queensland over the years prompted by the contemporary photographs held in State Library's collections – from pivotal moments in history to the everyday minutiae of life. How have these moments informed and made Queensland, and consequently a greater Australian society, what it is today?
