Windows into Wartime: Home front insights through the lens of NSW government photographers

Windows into Wartime is a new exhibition that has been produced by State Records NSW for the Centenary of Anzac and to commemorate the First World War. The exhibition presents a selection of images produced by the NSW Government Printing Office Photographic Branch during and immediately after the Great War. As society mobilised on the home front in support of Australia’s military effort overseas, government photographers were on the ground in Sydney and across the stateshooting the image. They photographed a raft of activities and produced an extraordinary body of work that not only documented, but promoted and shaped how the people of NSW responded to the impact and upheaval caused by the First World War.
