Untitled From Baby Blues, 2001 by Konrad Winkler

While we may see thousands of images a day, some photographs have the power to truly capture our imagination.

M.33 Director Helen Frajman spoke to people around Australia who work with collections of contemporary Australian photography in public museums and galleries. She asked them to choose an image that they had trouble shaking off, which persists in their memory, which in effect has ‘haunted them’ – an image which while out of sight, is not out of mind.

Out of Sight aims to give a sense of the richness and depth of Australian photographs in our public collections as well as an opportunity to consider the ways in which we experience the visual.
