About the Work
The stories of “the killing times” are the ones we have heard in secret, or told in hushed tones. They are not the stories that appear in our history books yet they refuse to go away. The Dark Forgetting uses distorted and disfigured landscapes to depict the violence of Australia’s early frontiers. Photographed in the sites of conflicts and massacres which occurred in the Bathurst War, this series reflects upon Australia’s untold history, and the immeasurable toll that this has had on Australia’s national identity, and the Australia’s First Peoples.
