Lovers of art and photography alike are in luck, as the Frank Hurley – Journeys into Papua exhibition is being brought to Pine Rivers Heritage Museum in October. This gives Caboolture real estate residents the opportunity to take a walk through Papua New Guinea's highlands and peninsulas and soak up the magnificence of the images captured by one of Australia's most talented photographers.
From 3 October through to 30 November, the exhibition will be on display at the Pine Rivers Heritage Museum with the official opening taking place on 4 October from 1pm through to 4pm. Moreton Bay Regional Council Division 11 Councillor Bob Millar said the visual journey will be an experience for anyone interested in brilliant photography and the history of the time.
"This is your chance to see a collection of rich photographs examining early 20th century life in New Guinea. In addition to the showcase of photography, a private collection of artefacts including wooden masks, weaponry, statues and textiles will be on display," said Mr Millar in a 26 September statement.
The opening evening is not to be missed, with Griffith University's Head of School of Humanities Professor Chris Lee coming to share insights from Hurley's diaries and experiences depicted in the pictures presented.
