Overview

In 2004, Janine Burke was looking for a photograph she'd taken of Albert Tucker. Crammed into the bottom drawer of a filing cabinet in her study, she discovered hundreds of photographs that she had taken over the years and had forgotten about. Personal View: Photographs 1978-1986 reveals Burke - best known as an author and art historian - as an 'accidental photographer' who recorded the artists, critics, writers, and curators who were her friends and colleagues during a dynamic period in Australian art. Living in Carlton in the 70s, Burke was part of a milieu that generated the women's art movement, feminist exhibitions, radical journals, experimental galleries, and provocative art. The common denominator in all these ventures were the networks of intense friendships which became a catalyst that helped to change the culture. As a snapshot of an era, Personal View: Photographs 1978-1986 is a casual, intimate, visual memoir that includes Albert Tucker, Betty Churcher, Sue Ford, Allan Mitelman, Jenny Watson, Shane Maloney, John Nixon, Frances Lindsay, and Paul Taylor.
