Born in Berlin of an art historian father and a film director mother, Mim Sievers was always going to make an indelible
mark in some form of self-expression.. When he left Germany in 1938 to escape conscription into the Luftwaffe, he came to
a Melbourne which was the centre of manufacturing industry in Australia. Quickly establishing himself as an architectural
and industrial photographer, he was the leader of the post-war push to bring images of Australia’s industry to the
world, through worldwide Australian Government Trade shows. For the next 40 years he was to be the benchmark by which all
industrial or architectural photography was judged, and Mim’s images of his adopted nation’s coming of
age have had a dramatic and decisive effect on Australia’s economic and cultural development.
