See a curated selection of photographs and experience interwar Perth through the lens of photographer Abraham 'Izzy' Orloff. 

Between the end of World War I and the beginning of World War II, interwar was a period of intense social and ideological upheaval. In this exhibition, Orloff's rich collection of photographs reveals glimpses of Fremantle's public and private lives during this time.

Orloff was a much-loved community figure who worked as a professional studio and press photographer. He had an exceptional eye for human subjects in panoramic streetscapes, architecture and maritime arrivals. He examined Perth's social, domestic, and political spheres through a distinct worldview shaped by his experiences growing up in Ukraine and Palestine and as a Jewish migrant coming to WA.
