Captured: Early Brisbane Photographers and their Aboriginal Subjects presents 46 original carte des visites and more than 170 reproductions that offer an intriguing insight into the Brisbane Aboriginal community from 1860 to 1890. They document an important time in the social history of our city and exchanges between European settlers and Aboriginal people.
The exhibition centred on the work of four early Brisbane photographers – John Watson, William Knight, Thomas Bevan and Daniel Marquis – and included a life-size studio space allowing visitors to see and imagine those who came to have their image captured.
