A new photo from the Powerhouse Museum every day
Sometimes it is not the intended content of your photo shoot that becomes your only point of interest but rather what the photographer sees around themself that makes for a great shot, as in the case of this interesting close up of Australia’s largest native bird, the Emu (Dromaius novaehollandiae). One of our former photographers, Sue Stafford, took this shot whilst she was working in Yeoval, NSW taking portraits of Australian women pilots for an exhibition and publication titled ‘Women with wings: portraits of Australian women pilots’ This was celebrating the spirit and achievements of women pilots from across Australia
This manipulated image was shot on film back in 1998.
