The debut book by Melbourne-based photographer Warwick Baker presents a photographic meditation on sites of trauma and the psychological and historical resonances of landscape and place, whether imbedded, incurred, implied or imagined. Created in the Belanglo State Forest, Baker’s images forge a poignant taxonomy of a place that gained notoriety as a result of several murders in the 1990s. With its aerial photographs, hand-held medium format images, large-format landscapes, and still-life photographs, the body of work is at once forensic and speculative, using documentary techniques to address notions surrounding landscape, place, and histories of violence.
