The Flash of Recognition

Photography and the Emergence of Indigenous Rights

eBook - 2013
Rate this:
Inspired by the shocking photograph of two Aboriginal men in neck-chains on the cover of Charles Rowley's 1970 classic, The Destruction of Aboriginal Society, this original and highly illustrated book uses photography to tell the bigger story of the struggle for Aboriginal rights in Australia. While many of the images are confronting, it shares the positive story of the way in which photography has been used as a tool for change and to argue for recognition of a shared humanity. Starting at the turn of the 20th century and continuing to the Northern Territory Intervention in the present.
