This rather majestic black and white photographic portrait of Australian artist, designer and photographer Dahl Collings (Dulcie May Wilmott 1910-1988) was shot by her husband Geoffrey Collings (1905-2000) during a trip to Stonehenge around 1936.

I have just catalogued the 1930s photographs from The Dahl and Geoffrey Collings Archive as part of an internship project for my Masters of Art Curatorship at the University of Sydney. Although photography was only a small part of their practice, beginning in the mid 1930s, it paints a very broad picture of their holistic approach to art and design.
With the holiday season fast approaching we thought it was an opportune time to highlight one of the collections being catalogued by archives staff this year, 2007/30/1 the archives of Dahl and Geoffrey Collings, part of which has a strong Christmas/New Year theme.
