Points of focus : historic photographs from the Pacific

Images spanning major historical events to the minutiae of everyday life, from Papua New Guinea and beyond

Points of Focus: historic photographs from the Pacific, published in association with the exhibition at the Macleay Museum (1 March – 7 November 2014) explores the Pacific region, its peoples and histories, through photographs. Grouped into five themes – community, sea & land, governance, spirituality and the market – the publication features a selection of over 100 images drawn exclusively from the Macleay Museum Historic Photograph Collection. Taken during the colonial era, the images span major historical events to the minutiae of everyday life, and include photographs from Papua New Guinea, the Solomon Islands, Vanuatu, and Samoa.
