Global Photography Now: Asia Pacific – Part 3

The Asia Pacific is home to a range of remarkably talented and diverse photographers. This seminar focuses on three practitioners whose photographic work is informed by an astute sense of both the historical past and present. In differing ways, Anne Ferran (Australia), Lisa Reihana (New Zealand) and Yee I-Lann (Malaysia) create photographs in which time is a fluid and even non-linear dimension, allowing them to meld an astute sense of colonial histories with contemporary personal and social realities. The work of these three photographers creates an encounter between cultures and histories that is both specific to the regions in which they live, and communicates global issues of relevance to us all. Isobel Crombie, Senior Curator of Photography at the National Gallery of Victoria joins these artists in conversation to explore their diverse practices in relation to their cultural contexts.
