Details

Axel Poignant (1906-1986) is a major figure in the history of Australian photography. In these brilliant images he explores the way of life of descendants of pioneer settlers living along an isolated tributary of the Hawkesbury River half a century ago. Roslyn Poignant, in the text, recounts her memories of accompanying the photographer along the river and examines the complex relationships between personal retrospection, collective memory and the record captured by the camera.

This book will be of great interest to the many admirers of Axel Poignant's work as well as to social and art historians and the host of Australians with family connections to the Hawkesbury River.

Soft cover, quarto landscape, 48 pages. 'Nostalgic, unassuming and deeply personal.. it has a heart as big as this great continent of ours.'
