Adventure, Travel and Desire

This is the name of a talk at the NGVI I attended yesterday. It was mostly about the Small Worlds exhibition of 19th century travel photographs. The speaker was Alison Inglis, Fine Arts lecturer from Melbourne Uni. It was fantastic – she is a very knowledgeable and intelligent woman and a very good speaker. She put the photographs in their historical and cultural context, and offered some insightful theories. If anyone has the chance to hear her I definitely recommend it.
