Olive Cotton: Photographer presents superb reproductions of over 60 major works, ranging from her earliest photographs taken with a box Brownie, her exhibition work of the 1930s, examples of commercial work from the Max Dupain Studio during the war, through the ‘country’ years raising her family and photographing nature, to her return to public prominence in 1985 with her first solo exhibition.
