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: Carolyn Young « Previous | |Next »
November 2, 2013

Carolyn Young's photography is concerned with how society engages with the natural environment and the relationship between natural resource management and the visual arts, with particular focus on the photographic medium. Her background is environmental science and her photographic genre is landscape.

She is associated with the Engaging Visions Research Project, which investigates the best way to engage artists with catchment communities in the Murray-Darling Basin to help manage natural resources.

The focus of the Real River 's project in 2004 was rivers in NSW with a healthy ecosystem. I am pleasantly surprised there were so many healthy rivers during the long drought in the Murray-Darling Basin; pleasantly because a sense of a country violated is at the heart of the Australian environment movement.
