The Hedda Morrison collection in the Powerhouse Museum, Sydney was generously donated by Alastair Morrison, Hedda's husband of forty-five years, in the years since Hedda's death in 1991.

The collection primarily comprises 349 exhibition prints that were made by Hedda after she settled in Canberra in 1967. The prints include photographs that she took in China, Sarawak and Australia, where Hedda lived for extended periods, as well as other countries that she visited for shorter periods. The collection also includes 165 slides of Asia, New Zealand and Australia, and a group of negatives of the Trachenfest folk festival taken by Hedda in Stuttgart in 1931, which are the only known photographs that Hedda produced in Germany. A collection of personal papers and objects that were collected by Hedda and Alastair, notably Chinese papercuts and toggles, also forms part of the collection.

A selection of objects and documents from the Hedda Morrison collection is included on this website.
