This photograph is one of many from the current Sit. Pose. Snap. Brisbane Portrait Photography 1850 - 1950 exhibition at the Museum of Brisbane, located in Brisbane City Hall. The exhibition explores the phenomenon of studio portrait photography in Brisbane and shows how the process of capturing and sharing a portrait evolved from the formal studio sittings of the 19th century through to candid and relaxed photographs of the mid-20th century.

Hello, my name is Anna. I’m a wife, a mum, a daughter, a sister, a friend, an employee, a runner and a great lover of our amazing city and beautiful state.

I first started taking photos of Brisbane, about 2 years ago, when I was out pounding the pavement early in the morning. I would see images of our amazing city and want to share them with people and so I decided to post them to Instagram. I’ve been taking photos of Brisbane ever since and when I say “taking photos” I mean with an iPhone! I endeavour to keep my photos to their original colour and sometimes I use filters.
