Street Photography Exhibition

Museum of Sydney, Corner Phillip and Bridge Streets, Sydney
12/8/18 to 7/21/19

The Museum of Sydney is hosting a "Street Photography" exhibition of images from the mid-20th Century. Photographers were a familiar sight on Sydney’s streets, capturing everyday people as they strode by or stopped to pose. Taken against the vibrant background of the city streets, these photographs captured candid moments in the lives of millions of people, from uniformed servicemen and women to postwar migrants exploring their new city and young couples out for a day in town.
