Now And Then Photographic Exhibition and Competition Museum of Sydney

June 15th, 2012



Now And Then is a historical photography project with a twist – an old photo is reframed within a new one to tell a story of past moments and how times have changed and budding photographers can get in on the act.

  • 16 June –  4 November 2012
  • Museum of Sydney
  • Now and Then photographic competition opens 16 June 2012

Now And Then was originally lunched as an online project by ABC Open in October 2010.  Now And Then invites people across Australia to share their stories about local people and places. Regional Australians have contributed images reframing historical photos from a mix of collections including family albums, libraries, historical societies and museums, and the archives of schools, companies and charitable organisations.

Now And Then  celebrates the legacy of both private and public photograph collections cared for in regional towns. The images demonstrate the rich tapestry of history, landscapes and cultures found across Australia.

Imagine being able to bring back Sydney’s trams and long-forgotten milk bars in the ‘burbs, or recapturing the moment that Francis De Groot unceremoniously slashed the ribbon at the opening of the Sydney Harbour Bridge. 

Now And Then photographic competition
The Historic Houses Trust is giving budding photographers the chance to do just this and have their own past and present Sydney photograph displayed at the Museum of Sydney as a part of the new photography exhibition Now and Then opening 16 June.

Visit and follow the links to enter and upload your photo that captures a slice of Sydney’s past and present between Saturday 16 June and Monday 23 July.
