Photography has given artists powerful technology to explore their ideas.
The challenge is to measure the result of its success in conveying the ideas, rather than being an artefact of the production process.
Two Melbourne artists who go beyond the technology are sharing space at Roger Williams Contemporary Gallery off Upper Queen St.
Polixeni Papapetrou shows several works from her Haunted Country series, which use stories of lost children to explore the relationship Australians have with their landscape.
