Absent history

My working on this project had been  put on hold  whilst I helped to complete the Adelaide Art Photographers 1970-2000  book,  and then  finalise the images and text  for the final  collaborative Mallee Routes exhibition at the Murray Bridge Regional Gallery.

I did make the Wentworth photocamp as well as  a subsequent photocamp  at Tanunda.   The photography for  the ‘Absent History’ section of the Mallee Routes exhibition spread into, or overlapped with,  the early settler colonial history associated with the Overland Stock Route.

The direction of the project has been changing in that the focus has shifted away from the Murray River to the early colonial encounters with the indigenous aboriginal people. The last time I heard anything about the Godson Murray River project was that a grant for a curator was going to be applied for. I have heard nothing since, and I don’t know if the grant application is in process.
