Wolfgang Georg Sievers was an acclaimed architectural and industrial photographer, both in Australia and internationally. His photographic oeuvre in Australia encompasses architecture, manufacturing industries, mining and workers from 1938 through to 1991.
Sievers left Nazi Germany to escape war service and persecution for his Jewish descent, migrating to Australia in 1938. He settled in Melbourne in 1939, establishing his photographic studio in South Yarra.
Sievers was inspired to photograph the work of Australian modernist architects exhibiting what he termed 'clean forms and wonderful shapes', such as: Frederick Romberg, Robin Boyd and David McGlashan. His architectural photography spanned corporate architecture to private residence,
In 1963, John and Sunday Reed commissioned architects McGlashan and Everist to design their second home on the Heide property, a place where art and the natural environment could coincide. Heide II, as it came to be known, was envisaged as a building with a dual function: as a space to live in but with the view that it could become a gallery in the future.
