Light years layers photographs, landscapes and stories to construct a sharply focused portrait of photographer Olive Cotton and the images and philosophies that have shaped her life and work. As one of Australia’s most accomplished photographers with a portfolio spanning sixty years, Olive and her story offer a rich insight into Australian life.
Our collection comprises over 40,000 moving image works, acquired and catalogued between the 1940s and early 2000s. As a result, some items may reflect outdated, offensive and possibly harmful views and opinions. ACMI is working to identify and redress such usages.
