Notes n 1914, Paul Dubotzki left his home in Bavaria to accompany an expedition to Sumatra and China as expedition photographer. The outbreak of World War One took him by surprise in German New Guinea, where he managed to evade being taken as prisoner of war. He managed to make his way to Adelaide where in 1915 he was arrested as an 'enemy alien' and interned in the South Australian internment camp at Torrens Island before being transferred to the camps at Holsworthy and Trial Bay Gaol in New South Wales. Throughout his time as an internee, Paul took photographs and ran a commercial photographic studio within the camps selling photos that recorded the internment experience for internees and guards alike. In 2007, Paul's remarkable collection was discovered by NSW Migration Heritage Centre researcher Nadine Helmi in the safe keeping of his two elderly daughters in the small town of Dorfen, Germany. For the artist, who died in 1962, photography was a true sociological medium. He was also a painter and worked in Dorfen, Germany
