Client: State Library of NSW

Brief:
The Derby Collection is one of Australia’s greatest collections of natural history images. The State Library of NSW commissioned Afterglow to describe the library’s sleuth-like efforts into recovering, preserving and describing the incredible works.

Solution:
The documentary combines graphics and interviews with the curator and conservator that foreground the sheer beauty of the images that were created in the early days of the colony.

Result:
The Artist Colony video was screened with an exhibition of the Derby Collection and is available on the library website.
