David Mist: Swinging Sydney

Well-known fashion photographer David Mist captured the fashions and flavour of life in Sydney in the late 1960s.

Born in London, Mist trained and worked in the UK before moving to Sydney in 1961 to work in Laurence Le Guay and John Nisbett’s studio. With Sydney’s fashion scene still in its infancy, Mist’s European trained eye was highly sought after and he quickly established himself in the burgeoning industry here.

In partnership with the Museum of Applied Arts and Sciences.

Major Sponsors: Nikon 

The exhibition draws from Mist’s fashion and commissioned work, including set-up and candid images that depict a young, hip and increasingly cosmopolitan city.
