Franca Barraclough: The Visitors

‘The Visitors’ by Franca Barraclough is an exhibition of large–scale photographs, which depict the people, paths and stories woven through the sociological landscape of contemporary Central Australian culture.

Created as a result of Barraclough’s engagement with local community members and drawing from their unique and immersive experiences in Central Australia, the images figuring all the gloss of tourism advertising reflect the pressures of living in the region from extreme weather to the remoteness and culture-clash against a backdrop of ancient and powerful Australian landscapes.
