Featuring photographs by Dorothea Lange, Toyo Miyatake and Australian wartime photographers, Capturing the Home Front is a photographic exhibition documenting WWII on the home front in Australia and the USA.
The exhibition includes original Depression and WWII photographs by Lange on loan from the Museum of Contemporary Photography in Chicago and photographs by Toyo Miyatake, a Japanese American internee and professional photographer from Los Angeles who smuggled a lens into Manzanar and built a camera to capture camp life.  Complementing the American content are reproductions from Australian collections of the evocative work of Sam Hood, William Cranstone, Jim Fitzpatrick and Hedley Cullen who documented wartime industry, Japanese internment, family and country life on our side of the Pacific.
