If there was ever a photographer to take Melbourne’s portrait, it was Rennie Ellis.

Join curator Angela Bailey on a tour exploring the Library’s newest exhibition Melbourne Out Loud: Life through the lens of Rennie Ellis, showcasing Melbourne at its most candid.

Touching on the exhibition’s themes and the creative process, Angela will take you through Rennie’s images and highlight the iconic, unseen and everyday photographs from one of our greatest chroniclers.

From the MCG to Tina Turner, this exhibition is a celebration of going out, being seen and being yourself.

PHOTO Australia respectfully acknowledges the traditional custodians of the lands upon which we work and live, and the rich and diverse Indigenous cultures across what is now called Australia. For over 60,000 years, Indigenous arts and culture have thrived on this sacred land, and we honour Elders and cultural leaders past and present. This was, and always will be, Aboriginal land.
