Photographing the landscape of contemporary family life in Australia.
The aim of The Contemporary Australian Family Photographic Project was to photograph the typical Australian family, to make photographs that record the social-cultural landscape of contemporary family life (or relationships) in Australia today.
Participating photographers, photographed Australian families over a 12 month period. The results reflect the diverse range, nature and cultural aspects of family life and relationships found today in Australian families and society.
Family life and relationships include the nuclear family, single-parent, same-sex, blended families, no children families, adoptive families and/or no parent families. The exhibition includes photographic portraits from a diverse range of cultures and indigenous families, and reflects on family life in the past.
The photographers, photographed self-identity within the family and the community. They also photographed the structure of the family, and the nature of relationships with their family, friends and colleagues.
Most importantly the photographs show that families and their circumstances vary significantly from each other.
