'Bunyeroo Valley, Flinders Ranges'. A vintage gelatin silver photograph (visible image size 230 x 360 mm) captioned and signed in pencil on the mat by this influential pioneering South Australian photographer
The mat shows some acid discolouration and is a little foxed; the photograph is in excellent condition, behind glass and in the original simple timber frame.
Frederick Allen Joyner (1863-1945) was 'President of the South Australian Photographic Society at the height of its influence as a leading group in the fledgling nation, and as an individual he had his own work shown and reproduced around the world. Later, in the 1920s, he was one of the first modern photographers to see and interpret the light and nuances of the Flinders Ranges' (from the catalogue of the 1981 AGSA exhibition of F.A. Joyner's photographs).
