Album of Charles Kerry photographs

  • F3466
  • Item
  • 1875?-1930?

Album of 52 albumen prints, (20 x 15cm) mounted on board. Written on the images in white capital letters are captions, a photographic number and the name of the photographic studio 'Kerry, Photo, Sydney'. Handwritten on the mounting boards are pencil captions, often with less information than the captions on the images and the photographic number supplied by Kerry crossed out and alternative numbering provided. The album itself has been bound and has a handwritten spine title stuck to it "Australian Aboriginal ceremonies". It looks to have been added to the album at a later date, thus not the original title of the album.

The images are of Australian Aboriginal people in what appears to be mostly staged poses for Australian Aboriginal ceremonies, corroborees, dance, tracking, fights as well as photographs of various individuals. Some of the photographs have painted backdrops. Some of the people in the photographs were members of "Meston's Wild Australia" (also know as Archibald Meston's "Wild Australia Show"). There are some photographs that were most likely taken in Sydney in December 1892 by Charles Kerry. This is based on the beach setting and the backdrops being identical to those photographs for Archibald Meston's "Wild Australia Show".

Listed below are the contents of the album. The number corresponds to the page number in the album; the tile is what appears on the image itself; and in brackets is the Kerry Studio photograph number and the alternative number if provided. Information in square brackets is provided by the processing archivist:
