Home: A Suburban Obsession

August 5, 2019 10:00 am - 5:00 pm

Home: A Suburban Obsession is a State Library of Queensland exhibition about the allure of home and the stories found within, inspired by one of the largest digitised photographic collections of Queensland houses. It explores the social and emotional foundations of our houses through ephemera and artistic responses capturing the places we call home. During the 1960s and 70s, Frank and Eunice Corley roamed the suburbs photographing houses in south-east Queensland. Fifty years on, the legacy of their efforts is an extensive collection of images that indiscriminately capture Queensland housing stock – from the architectural to the ramshackle.
