BALLARAT photographer Aldona Kmiec wants to track down the identity of this mystery woman.
She features in a series of old photographs purchased at an auction in Ballarat in 2012.
They were taken by an unknown Australian female photographer from 1904 through to the 1960s.
Miss Kmiec is trying to find out who she was.
What we do know is the woman worked as a Voluntary Aid Detachment nurse and travelled to Malaysia where someone named Walter worked as a radio telegrapher.
The woman also travelled to Niagara Falls, San Francisco on the SS Orduna, Hawaii, India, England and China.
She also photographed Australian soldiers in the Peace Procession in London in 1919, the Imhof family in the United States, worked in a Balwyn “Highlow” House for returned WWI soldiers and there is also a wedding photograph from a photo studio in Mildura.
"(Looking at the photos), she travelled to so many places and really had an eye for people and events," Miss Kmiec said.
"As a professional photographer and a collector, I cannot let these photographs go forgotten, undiscovered, unnamed."
Can you help?
These photos are on display in an exhibition, Lost But Found, on display at The Forge Pizzeria as part of the Ballarat International Foto Biennale.
