Shot delves into the Library’s extraordinary collection of two million images and delivers a visual feast of 400 captivating moments — many displayed for the first time — with nearly every photographic format and every year between 1845 and 2022 represented.

The exhibition features Australia’s oldest photograph, the earliest examples of colour photography, iconic works by some of our most acclaimed photographers and contemporary images and commentary by over 30 living photographers.

On display for the first time are 25 large glass plate negatives from the Holtermann collection which form an astonishing 9-metre panorama of Sydney in 1875.

Due to the delicate nature of numerous works, this may be the first and only time to see some of these rare images of Australia’s pictorial history on display.

Shot includes works by James Abbe, Matthew Abbott, Margaret Allen, Geoff Ambler, Michael Amendolia, American & Australasian Photographic Co, Emmanuel Angelicas, Ben Apfelbaum, Australian Broadcasting Corporation, Charles Bayliss, David Beal, William (Harry) Beanham, Raymond de Berquelle, Nic Bezzina, Brian Bird, Mervyn Bishop, Frederic Bonney, Cecil W Bostock, Francis Patrick (Pat) Burgess, Henry William Burgin II, Walter Burke, Frederick Spencer Burnell, Stanley Charles Calderwood, Jeff Carter, Frank Cash, Harold Cazneaux, CBC, Herbert Chargois, Charles Chauvel, James Allan Chauvel, Rodney Cherry, Cinecraft, Cinesound Productions, Darren Clark, Marcia AM Clark, William Colbeck, Ellen Comiskey, Olive Cotton, Brenda L Croft, Edwin Dalton, Patrick Dawson, John Degotardi Jr, Ian Dodd, Robert Donaldson, Max Dupain, Stephen Dupont, Augustine Dyer, Edward B Eastwick, Rennie Ellis, John Ellison, Everingham Photo Company, S Farrell, Noel Fisher, Gerrit Fokkema, Helena Forde, Arthur Ernest Foster, Josephine Ethel Foster, Claus Franzen, Harry Freeman, Freeman Brothers & Prout, Frederick Frith, Lawrence Frost, Hudson Fysh, Gibbs Shallard & Co, Thomas Glaister, George Barron Goodman, Gove & Allen, Leon Gregory, Ian Grimes, Hall & Co, Liz Ham, Geoffrey Hawkins, Rex Hazlewood, Noel Hazzard, Norman Herfort, William Hetzer, David Hickson, Jack Hickson, Rob Hillier, Charles Archibald Hoadley, Douglas Holleley, Patricia Holmes, Bernhardt Otto Holtermann, Sam Hood, Ted Hood, Hughes & Mullins, Frank Hurley, Marjorie Hystek, Ivan Ive, Alec Iverson, Jamie James, John Janson-Moore, FR Johnson, Ellen José, Arthur Robert Henry Joyner, Ichiro Kagiyama, John William Kaye, Milton Kent, Valmond Kinley, Luke Kyniston, Joy Lai, Charles Francis Laseron, V Laviosa, Le Courrier Australien, Jon Lewis, John William Lindt, Peter Luck, Monte Luke, Wendy McDougall,
