Share your collections - Capturing Nature

28/10/2020

Hurstville Museum & Gallery is seeking information and stories about natural history collections and collectors in the Georges River area, to coincide with the travelling exhibition from the Australian Museum, Capturing Nature: Early photographs at the Australian Museum 1857-1893.

The community is encouraged to share their collections to help Hurstville Museum & Gallery highlight the fascinating, the quirky, and the informative natural history collections in the neighbourhood.

The exhibition brings to life a fascinating array of early photographs, exploring the past, present and future of life on Earth through images of specimens; from insects to fish, birds to reptiles, plants, fungus and animals. Capturing Nature reveals the 19th century Victorian obsession with classification, showcasing a time when photography was revolutionising science, art and society.

Capturing Nature is on display at Hurstville Museum & Gallery from 31 October 2020 until 31 January 2021. Entry is free.

Share the story of your collection via georgesriver.nsw.gov.au/yoursay or reach out to museumgallery@georgesriver.nsw.gov.au or (02) 9330 6444.
