In Edge of Elsewhere, eleven established photographers intersect through the thematic strands of environmental and social futures, considering potential scenarios and the impact of our actions. These artists are united by shared concerns around the global climate catastrophe, the Anthropocene, environmental degradation and the social implications. Their work raises awareness of the urgency to find solutions and address the fate of the world.

This exhibition forms a nuanced conversation around how changing societal and environmental ideologies will impact us now and in the future. Edge of Elsewhere interweaves these perspectives into a powerful meditation on how we envision our existence in the future, within the context of a rapidly changing world.

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.
