AUS-NSW-WEST Mailing List

This page is available to list details of photographers in outback NSW. Like most pages on the AUS-NSW-WEST website, it relies on input from everyone to grow to be a resource for all. So, if you have a name of a photographer, with a date and place of operation, please feel free to add them to the list.

This may help other people date photographs they have in their collections.

Please note that many would have continued operation after 1900, and any information that would extend these dates would be appreciated.

This list has mainly been abstracted from The Mechanical Eye in Australia: Photography 1841-1900 by Alan Davies & Peter Stanbury.

Sources of Information
other than those in The Mechanical Eye, appear in square brackets at the end of an entry, and are amplified at the bottom of this page.

The assistance of the List Deputy in the compilation of this page is most appreciated.

Stevens, Henry T was a travelling photographer from Wilcannia at least 1886-1894, who photographed people along the Darling River. Many of his photographs show rough backgrounds with stones and sand clearly seen. It is possible that he travelled along the Darling River by paddle steamer, and set up where-ever there was an interest in having photographs taken. 

An 1888 advertisement announced "Mr H.T. Stevens, well-known on the river for his exceptionally brillliant work, will remain in Wentworth until further notice. Landscape and portrait Photography. Look for further announcement" [Linda]

Thrower, W.D. was at Wilcannia some time before 1877, then at Bairnsdale in Victoria in 1877 and Warragul in Victoria in 1885. [Linda]
