Publisher's Description
Works from Australia’s leading photographers Oculi Photography Group ‘As a collective, we made a real point of documenting our homeland – its sensitivities, its great brutalist elements, the light that has scorched and battered this land for millennia.’ – Dean Sewell This stunning anthology of 250 photographs marks ten years since the formation of the acclaimed Oculi photographic collective.

From apocalyptic representations of drought and fire-ravaged landscapes to intimate yet haunting portraits of young parenthood, Oculi’s ten multi-award winning photographers vividly explore the intersection of the human condition and the urban and rural environment in Australia and beyond. This superbly produced book features works from Australia’s leading photographers including Donna Bailey, Tamara Dean, Jesse Marlow, Dean Sewell, Nick Moir, Steven Siewert, Andrew Quilty, James Brickwood, Tamara Voninski and Jeremy Piper. Oculi is a powerful photographic study of our time.

Oculi' is a survey that charters the first ten years of the Australian documentary photographic collective Oculi - an examination of the geo-political and social landscape of Australia and our regional neighbours throughout the first decade of the 21st Century. It addresses the social implications of the new globalised economy of which we are part as well as the environmental consequences exerted by climate change, as well as Australian youth cultures, subcultures, social rituals and the human condition. 'Oculi' explores the broadest gamet of photographic documentary genres including street photography, photojournalism, press photography, portraiture, social/environmental documentary, still life and embraces contemporary and fine art practice.
