Impressions of Greece

A journey through the photographic archives of William Woodhouse

The Nicholson Museum holds over 1500 glass-plate negatives of Greece taken by William Woodhouse,  Professor of Classics and Nicholson Museum curator at the University of Sydney in the 1890s and early 1900s. Woodhouse's photographs captured landscapes, archaeological sites, villages, monasteries, festivals and daily life in mainland Greece.

In this free talk Nicholson Museum curator Candace Richards will present the museum’s citizen archiving Flickr project which is seeking public help in identifying and describing the images. The talk will explore the richness of the photographs as a documentary resource, and we will learn more about Woodhouse’s life, his teaching and his love of Greece.
