Artist Colony

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.

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.

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