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.

South Australian photography: Ernest Gall « Previous | |Next »
June 3, 2013

I've started digging around the work of early 20th century photographers to see what they photographed along the southern Fleurieu Peninsula. One photographer I've started looking at is Ernest Gall, due to stumbling upon his picture of the coastline west of Rosetta Head a month or so ago.

I know very little about Gall, other than he primarily photographed around the city of Adelaide but he did make some photographs in and around Victor Harbor around 1906.

He produced a book entitled Gall’s South Australian Scenes, which was a companion volume to Gall's glimpses of Adelaide and South Australia.

There is an MA thesis by Lauren Renee Sutter entitled Constructing an Adelaide metropolis: the photography of Ernest Gall and Harry Krischock (1860s-1940s) but it is not online.
