My City of Sydney is a photographic record of our city using works from the collection that date from the 1880s to the 1990s. This exhibition deliberately avoids the clichéd images of 'postcard' views and presents an alternative impression to that given international exposure in tourist brochures and Mission Impossible 2. The exhibition includes works by Charles Bayliss, Harold Cazneaux, Max Dupain, Mark Johnson, Tracey Moffatt and Christine Godden, as well as a selection of 19th century images by unknown photographers.
