Harold Cazneaux created photographs of lasting artistic value. Reprinted in paperback, this selection illustrates his versatility, his fascination with the qualities of sunlight and shadow, and his projection of a uniquely Australian sense of time and place.

Drawn largely from the National Library’s rich collection and complemented by exhibition prints owned by the Cazneaux family and other collections, this superb publication brings together over 50 exceptional photographs.
