Camels, cockerels and governors. Thinking with the photographs of EL Mitchell.

Camels, cockerels and governors. Thinking with the photographs of E.L. Mitchell.

Illustrated talk by Dr Joanna Sassoon.

For nearly 100 years E.L. Mitchell’s emblematic photographs of several Australian states have shaped how Australia was seen internationally. Many will recognize Mitchell’s images from having seen them published in Australian school textbooks, government publications, postcards, lantern-slides, international pictorial encyclopedia and museum exhibitions. But who was Mitchell, why did he succeed above his competitors, and how did his archive survive?

In this illustrated talk, Joanna will bring together three biographies – of the photographer, his photographs, and his archive. In doing so, Joanna will discuss this innovative approach to thinking with photographs and open a conversation about the ways institutions document and digitise photographs and how this shapes the way they can be used.
