These exquisite photographs are the result of a four-year collaboration between the Historic Houses Trust (HHT) and Stacey who gained unprecedented access to the more than 29,000 objects held in the collections of Elizabeth Bay House, Vaucluse House, Rouse Hill House & Farm and the Caroline Simpson Library & Research Collection.

The exhibition will feature over 15 of Stacey’s striking images, a selection of objects from each of the properties and a slide-show revealing the intricate process behind each photograph.
