‘Photography & place  Australian landscape photography 1970s until now’,
The  Art Gallery of NSW (AGNSW), Sydney. Curator Judy Annear, Senior
Curator of Photography, AGNSW, March 16th – 29th May, 2011

Unlike politically and conceptually informed landscape photography in
Australia in the 1970s, which was a tentative exploration of the idea of
place and reclamation, some recent photographic work can be seen to
explore the idea of place in dynamic relation to culture, despite the
specificities of location.

This exhibition looks at the earlier work and compares and contrasts
intention and effect in relation to more recent photography and examines
works that present very specific views of locations and what that
location or place can be taken to represent. Includes 18 artists from
Jon Rhodes, Lynn Silverman, Simryn Gill, Ricky Maynard, Simone Douglas,
Rosemary Laing to Paul Ogier.

Collision (surrender) 2000


work from Collision (surrender) included in the new book:

Marsh, Anne (essays), Zimmer, Jenny (ed). Look: Contemporary Australian
Photography since 1980, Macmillian Press.  Dec 2010.

Look: Contemporary Australian Photography since 1980

Look: Contemporary Australian Photography since 1980 is the largest book
ever published on Australian contemporary photography and is destined to
become one of the most significant surveys of its time.

The sumptuous, large-format book, with over 400 colour plates showcases
the work of 190 individual photographers and creates a critical forum
through the accompanying essays written by esteemed academic and art
historian Anne Marsh.

The pictures are grouped together in themes: environment, life,
identity, space and experiment, some of the themes have sub-themes:
beach, sky, youth. Each theme has a short introduction and every
photograph has an extended caption. The critical essays, positioned at
the back of the book, analyse the curatorial and theoretical issues that
have shaped photography over the last 30 years and are accompanied by a
timeline detailing important photographic exhibitions and events, and an
extensive bibliography.

Eagerly awaited by artists, critics, the art community and their
publics, the book is the culmination of a five-year research project
assisted by the Australian Research Council and the Australia Council.

Designed and edited by Jenny Zimmer. Published by Macmillan.
190 artists, 400+ colour plates, many full page, 400pp, including index.
