Photography: Real and Imagined | Author: NGV

Photography: Real and Imagined interrogates the proposition that photographs are either grounded in reality - a record, a document, a reflection of the world - or the product of imagination, storytelling and illusion. On occasion, they can be both.

In this publication, 295 photographs from the National Gallery of Victoria, by Australian and international photographers, are richly illustrated and explored through 21 themes, including light, movement, narrative, conflict, work, play, and death. Spanning the 1840s to the current day, the works in Photography: Real and Imagined are an exploration of the past, present and future of photography, and a celebration of more than five decades of collecting photography at a major art museum.
