Dreams and imagination: light in the modern city examines the special role of light and artificial illumination in Australian modernist urban photography. The exhibition will offer a new perspective on Australian modernist photography by focusing on the important connections between the growth of Australian cities, modernist photography, and the unique role of light as key a symbol of progress and national identity in Australia.
