Description:

Rare vintage photograph by the Hobart based photographer, Alfred Winter (1827-1911)

Artist:

Alfred Winter (1827-1911)
Winter was a sketcher and professional photographer. He exhibited at the 1866 Melbourne Intercolonial Exhibition and was awarded an honourable mention for his work. Winter also exhibited at the 1880 Melbourne International Exhibition. Winter had trained as a photographer with P.M. Batchelder. He had his own Bourke Street photographic studio in 1860-67 as well as being listed in partnership with his brother, Richard William Winter, at 90 Bourke Street in 1865. At the 1866 Melbourne Intercolonial Exhibition Alfred Winter exhibited photographic portraits, plain and coloured. He was awarded an honourable mention for the former, though the jury remarked that while some ‘are very good; others, however, are of unequal merit’. Winter’s paper prints of Tasmanian subjects are known from 1866 and in 1869-70. Winter moved to Hobart Town permanently, continuing to take portraits and advertising ‘a large variety of Tasmanian views’. Like many Tasmanian photographers he photographed Truganini, the last of the Oyster Cove Aboriginal people, in about 1875.
