The Language of Light and Dark: Light and Place in Australian Photography | Author: Melissa Miles
Myths of a distinctly Australian light have shaped national identity and belonging, and the notion that photography is a language of light has particular significance for the country’s photographic works.
In this lucid, beautifully illustrated study, Melissa Miles reveals how myths of light and place have been reinvented, renewed, and challenged. She explores how approaches to darkness and light have been affected by debates about colonisation, the landscape, urban development, and contemporary patterns of global and environmental change.
