If there are diverse kinds of knowledge and ways of knowing place, then we need to learn to value the different ways each of us sees a single place that is significant, but differently so, for each perspective.

Landscape art in Australia has traditionally been the last preserve of the Australian myth about nature, culture and beauty--ie., the timeless beauty of nature that transcends history.

The Australian landscape tradition has largely been overshadowed by the American one and landscape painting Australia. The South West Light's representation of space in the south west of Western Australia is about place and the photographer's responses to particular places. Most of this work is based on a perspectivalism in which in which the human being is centered as a spectator of a scene organized around a single point of view.
