This Saturday morning will see the last in a series of associated events celebrating Ballarat photography, new and old.

From 10am to 12pm guest speaker historian Anne Beggs-Sunter will join curator Amy Tsilemanis in the Hooper Room of the Ballaarat Mechanics’ Institute to discuss the selection of 1960s photographs on display from the Max Harris Collection.

The colourful entranceway walls have also been drawing lots of interest where 55 local photographers currently have their work featured. 

"These images really show off the rich life we get to enjoy here as Ballaratians," says Ms Tsilemanis.

"There are also some really lovely synergies between the old and new images like the shots of the Ballarat Show." 

Show ends September 30.
