The Absent History theme of the Photographing the Mallee project refers to history that has been forgotten displaced. This approach to photographing the Mallee emerged during  the collaborative Mallee Routes (2017-2019) section of the project.  Towards the end of  this  collaborative phase, when I was starting the solo part of  the project  I  linked  the contemporary black and white photos  to the black and white photos that I had made in the 1980s to explore the Mallee’s absent history.  

  The cameras used for the Absent history are  primarily  medium and large format (5×7 and 5×4)..
