BY PETER MADDERN
Last year, 2011, was the 175th year of European settlement of South Australia. SA-175 Snap Shots of our State is a brilliant editorial and pictorial review of that year by local photographer and writer, Peter Maddern.
Starting with youth music festival, Summadayze on New Year’s Day and going through to the last days of the preachers in the Mall and Occupy Adelaide, Peter covers the issues of the year and freeze frames the life and times of the State in bold photographs and text.
Eschewing usual media approaches to image creation and the grand land and cityscapes normally associated with books about South Australia, Maddern focuses instead on the people of the State, adopting a photographic style of the likes of Henri Cartier-Bresson that endeavours to capture unique moments of them interacting with events and the people around them.
Editorially, SA-175 Snap Shots of our State covers all the major issues of the year, from the bombast of the Adelaide Oval redevelopment debate to the exuberance of Australia Day, from our many festivals to football and sport generally, and the unhappy mix of water, wine and politics. From Lake Eyre to the South East, Maddern has tirelessly and with great determination sought out the unusual and the splendid from events and people being involved in them.
SA 175 Snap Shots of our State is an impressive record of one man’s view of our great State, presented for the benefit of current and local citizens, our significant diaspora, visitors and for historians in years to come looking to get a feel of the life and times of South Australia at the beginning of the second decade of the third millennium and 25 years out from our 200th year as a State.
SA-175 Snap Shots of our State is now available in book stores – see further details below.
