The Max Harris Photography Collection
This collection of historic Ballarat images, 1860s to 1960s and beyond is an exciting new addition to the BMI’s collection and its role in telling Ballarat’s stories.
Members and visitors can visit displays from the collection in the BMI lending library and order image prints, with all funds going towards the ongoing running of the BMI as an independent cultural hub.
