Works about this Work

The Photographic Eye: The Camera in Recent Australian Fiction Paul Genoni , 2002 single work criticism
— Appears in: Antipodes , December vol. 16 no. 2 2002; (p. 137-141)
Genoni discusses Australian novels, published largely in the late 1990s, that feature 'a character who is a cameraman or woman, sometimes professional, sometimes amateur, but to whom the world is framed, filtered and focused through the lens, the viewfinder, and the zoom.' He concludes, 'if we accept that space is produced by discursive practices, then we must question whether the text that is embedded in over 150 years of photgraphic production has not shaped an imagination that encounters space in terms of time as well as, or perhaps rather than, place.'
