The Australian Museum, exposed

21 January 2014

The incredible work of the Australian Museum photography department will be on show like never before with the launch of the new exhibition Museum EXPOSED!

Museum EXPOSED! is a touring exhibition featuring the work of the photography department from the Australian Museum. The photographers have unique access to some of the world’s best artefacts and exhibitions, giving them the chance to take photos like none other.

The photographers’ work can often be edited and their original concept distorted when published. In Museum EXPOSED!, 35 photos will be displayed in their original form as intended by the photographer.

From a Lion wrapped in plastic to a man with an aerial in his hand and a bird on his head, photographers of the Australian Museum in Sydney are exposed to many unique visual opportunities in their daily working lives.

Museum EXPOSED! is an opportunity to put forward images from the Museum’s photography department which may otherwise have never seen the light of day.
