An Everyday Transience: The Urban Imaginary of Goldfields Photographer John Joseph Dwyer

Editors Philip Goldswain and William Taylor pass an analytical eye over the 150 images featured, compromising of street and industrial photography that reflect the developments an innovations of that time and the amazing changes that Kalgoorlie experienced at the turn of the 20th Century.

Light lunch included. Please email to advise of any special dietary requirements.

"Dwyer was a remarkable man," Philip Goldswain says.

"He was a blacksmith, a miner and most famously, a photographer."

"He arrived in Kalgoorlie in 1896 with express intention of setting up a photography studio and then proceeded over the next 20 years to document the life of Kalgoorlie in its various forms, and left behind an amazing archive of images."
