‘Wesley Stacey’s 1960’s Richmond’ is an exhibition of photographs made by respected Australian artist Wesley Stacey in the late 1960s. Wes developed a reputation as a significant architectural photographer, commissioned to document buildings and towns across Australia.
Wes was in Richmond for a few days in 1968 during which he brought an artist’s eye to the town just prior to its emergence from a century in the doldrums.
Bypassed by roads, rail and causeways, Richmond settled into a period of reduced relevance and quietude, which saved it from unsympathetic development. Wes’ photographs record a very locally focussed Richmond.
