Revisit Australias Goldfields during the late 19th and early 20th century with the photographs of John Joseph Dwyer. Based in Kalgoorlie, Dwyer captured the development of the Goldfields. His outstanding images comprised street and industrial photography as well as underground and night-time photography, taking advantage of recent innovations in artificial lighting. Dwyers work reflected approaches and viewpoints from across the globe, the developments and innovations in photography of that time and the amazing changes that Kalgoorlie experienced at the turn of the 20th century.
