The National Film and Sound Archive of Australia will celebrates Mervyn Bishop, one of Australia's most prolific and influential photographers, with a new exhibition 5 March – 4 October 2021.
 
Mr Bishop's images of culture, politics and people have significantly influenced our collective understanding of Australia’s history. This exhibition is drawn from the Art Gallery of New South Wales collection, the artist’s private archive, and enriched by sound and moving image from the NFSA.
 
Mervyn Bishop features iconic photographs that derive from his career as a photojournalist, alongside personal images of family and friends and intimate portraits of members of the Aboriginal community. Spanning the past 60 years, the exhibition provides a fascinating insight into Bishop’s life and work.
