Description
 
The Port Arthur convict photographs are a remarkable record of the men who were sent from Britain to serve time in Australia between the 1820s and the 1850s. "Exiled: The Port Arthur Convict Photographs" takes some of these portraits and combines them with biographies of the men (and their female partners) based on transportation records, trial documents, official correspondence, prison files, local and overseas newspaper reports and eyewitness accounts.

The result is a fascinating insight into an often misunderstood part of Australia’s story, in which these reluctant pioneers become individuals born with strengths and weaknesses; who had hopes and dreams; celebrated victories and mourned tragedies; and made good decisions and bad. In short, they turn out to be men and women very much like ourselves.
