The Photograph and Australia

Visually rich with fine reproductions and high-level production, this book tells the many stories of photography in Australia over the last 175 years. It will examine the sense of wonder which the photograph can still induce for its ability to capture both things of the world and those of the imagination, and how Australia itself has been shaped by photography. Despite the complex history of photography in Australia, there have been few books published which present a comprehensive national view.

The Photograph and Australia will not only be an important addition to the scholarship on Australian photography but a valued addition to the bookshelves of photography experts and lovers of photography alike.
