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.

Australian photography: D. Darian Smith « Previous | |Next »
January 28, 2013

D. Darian-Smith was a South Australian photographer (1900-1984). The archive of his work is owned by Atkins Technicolour---there are around 40,000 negatives both glass plate and film.

The Capri Theatre, which opened in opened in 1941, is now owned by the Theatre Organ Society of South Australia (TOSA) and is run by volunteers.

Darian Smith was known for his aerial photography. He made them while standing on the wing of a bi-plane. In 1930 he published a book, 'Adelaide, South Australia from the air': a series of exclusive aerial photographs of Adelaide and environs. I have not seen this book.

The Osborne Power Station, was built in 1923, decommissioned in 1989-90, and demolished from 1998. I made a photo of it before it was dismantled.

There is only minimal information about D.Darian Smith online. It's a pity because Smith's work looks to be quite varied and of good quality. These are certainly not just trade views or corporate publicity shots.
