Frankly, there aren’t a lot of reasons to visit Canberra in the middle of winter, which is now. Here’s one: to see an exhibition of 100 years of Asia-Pacific photography, “Picture Paradise” at the National Gallery of Australia. This is the first exhibition to survey the history of Asia-Pacific photography, showing the work of pioneering local photographers, and Europeans working in the region. Included are images which have never before been exhibited, and a total of over 400 photographs culled from seventeen public and private collections on three continents. If you can’t bring yourself to travel to Canberra before the exhibition closes on 8 November, then definitely buy the exhibition catalog
