Trent Parke : Minutes to Midnight, Hardback

Trent Parke : Minutes to Midnight Hardback


In 2003, Trent Parke began a roadtrip around his native Australia, a monumental journey that was to last two years and cover a distance of over 90,000 km.

Minutes to Midnight is the ambitious photographic record of that adventure, in which Parke presents a proud but uneasy nation struggling to craft its identity from different cultures and traditions.

Minutes to Midnight merges traditional documentary techniques and imagination to create a dark visual narrative portraying Australia with a mix of nostalgia, romanticism and brooding realism.

This is not a record of the physical landscape but of an emotional one.

It is a story of human anxiety and intensity which, although told from Australia, represents a universal human condition in the world today.
