Summary Among the photographs of Nicholas John Caire are some of the finest images ever captured of the Australian landscape. Between 1875 and 1905 Caire explored the Victorian countryside to photograph for the commercial market. Lone figures dwarfed by luxuriant tree ferns, crystal waterfalls in forest frames, rustic dwellings with their solitary inhabitants - all convey Caire's deep love of the bush he photographed and reveal the mastery of his art. Cai're early photographs were made one at a time by the labour-intensive wet collodion process. By the end of his long career they were mass produced in books and newspapers, and as postcards. His images had popular appeal. They were among the most widely published late nineteenth and early twentieth century Australia photographs
