Certainly, I understand the need to constantly change displays of photos. But I've never seen any of the SA Gallery permanent collection on show and I think that's a great pity. IMHO it's important for the general public (which after all pays for the Gallery and everything in it) to get a sense of the history of photography in Australia and an appreciation of the subjects people have found worth photographing over the years. Yes, they can see some of that in books and catalogues but nothing beats looking at the real thing. I'll continue to pester away at this in the hope that one day they'll do something about it.
