The Adelaide Festival of Arts was on whilst I was a phototrip in Tasmania. So I missed the visual arts program.
I was interested in seeing Parallel Collisions at the Art Gallery of South Australia as it was a presentation of contemporary Australian art. I was curious to have a look at the novella in pictures and words by Max Pam (photographer) and Robert Cook (writer).

I wanted to see how Cook and Pam developed the relationship between image and text as I was exploring this with my Adelaide book. They made it a collision --a modernist opposition.
