photos and stories from the Powerhouse Museum
This great image comes from the David Mist photographic collection that the Museum acquired in the 90s. This shot appears on page 52 of the publication ‘Sydney, A Book of Photographs’, a collection of David’s photography that includes images taken around the city and inner suburbs of Sydney. David seems to capture a side of candid city life that reveals an interesting view of what life in the city was like, back in the 60s.
David picked up his first camera at the age of 13 and thus began his life-long passion and fascination with photography. He has worked as a fashion photographer in the 50s in London and decided to come to Australia in 1961 to try the fashion industry whilst also recording life in Sydney, that went on to be published in his book.
