Photographs

The Library is an active collector of documentary photography, especially images that record Victoria’s social history.

The collection covers 19th- and 20th-century photography, from the daguerreotype to digital media. We collect vintage prints, mass-produced commercial photographs and all types of photographic negatives. This includes work by professional and amateur photographers. 

Many of these photographs have been digitised and can be seen online.
