Abstract The landscape genre is typically tied to a sense of nationalism and place. For this reason the Art Gallery of New Wales's 2011 exhibition 'Photography and Place: Australian Landscape Photography 1970s Until Now' offered an interesting stepping-off point to pose what might seem like a somewhat odd question: 'Is Australian photography global?' Among a number of different messages and threads running throughout the exhibition, the metaphysical sublime was as constant as a political questioning of nature and culture. But for me 'Photography and Place' also begged further questions: what might a future exhibition of Australian landscape photography look like in, say, another thirty years? And is there such thing as 'Australian photography' in the era of globalisation?
