Picnic at Ngannelong

This series interrogate the fictions, stories and myths that contemporary understandings of the Australian landscape.

Each of these landscapes feature on the Victorian Massacre Map. This publicly available map was created for the Koorie Heritage Trust’s publication Koorie in 1991.  
These images were created by physically manipulated and scarring the analogue film. This process references the layering of time and calls into question the idea of repetitive imaging practices and how it enacts or embeds colonial mythology within landscape photography.
