Kathryn McCool’s Jubilee Years (1986-2020) strives to create an account of an elusive territory—not that of her homes in either New Zealand, or rural Victoria, but of her own psyche. Hovering over the decades with no clear place or time of belonging, McCool’s subjects—be they human or not—are given the same weight and presence in every frame in a realm of uncertain purpose and eerie beauty.

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.
