PHOTO 2021 playlist


Over the last year, we've asked PHOTO 2021 artists "If the work you are presenting at PHOTO was a song, what would it be?". We've created a playlist of the responses, a perfect soundtrack to your PHOTO 2021 walk around Melbourne.

PHOTO Australia respectfully acknowledges the traditional custodians of the lands upon which we work and live, and the rich and diverse Indigenous cultures across what is now called Australia. For over 60,000 years, Indigenous arts and culture have thrived on this sacred land, and we honour Elders and cultural leaders past and present. This was, and always will be, Aboriginal land.
