The Art Gallery of NSW in Sydney (AGNSW) has been collecting Australian photography since the 1970s and its commitment to the medium is unwavering. One of the first institutions in this country to view photography as a genuine art form rather than being the ‘poor cousin’ to other visual art pursuits, the AGNSW is the only state museum or art gallery to have a dedicated Photography gallery. Its collection comprises a large archive of Australian works numbering around 3800 as well as international works, and new acquisitions are part of its charter.
