Digital images of fungi.

Digital images of fungi investigated by Geraldine Kaminski.

This exhibition illuminates the career of Geraldine Kaminski, O.A.M. (1918–1985), one of the most eminent scientists in the history of the Women’s and Children’s Hospital. She had a wonderful career, distinguished by award, which focussed on an unusual field of blooms: fungal blooms.

A scientist of medical mycology, Kaminski was Australia’s ‘First Lady of Fungi’. This exhibition not only puts Kaminski’s career under the microscope, but the pathogenic fungi she investigated. Posing in portraits, the fungi innocently blossom, like unexpected flowers.

This exhibition is part of South Australia’s History Festival.
