You've never seen Melbourne in the '60s quite like this

Catch gorgeous glimpses of the young and beautiful Melburnians of the '60s by pivotal fashion photographer Henry Talbot – a German émigré who worked out of a studio on Flinders Lane.

"Henry Talbot's photography captures the exuberance and changing times of a generation," says NGV's director Tony Ellwood. "His modern photographs depict an emerging youth culture and offer an insider's look into a thriving cultural scene during the 1960s." Visitors will get up close to Talbot's spreads for Australian Vogue, as well as photographs taken in settings as diverse as sheep stations and laneways, which he famously transformed to look like Paris, London or New York.

This exhibition, held at NGV Australia in Fed Square, will run in conjunction with the vast and fascinating 200 Years of Australian Fashion exhibition.
