Anne Noble's photographic project, Whiteout is positioned in inverse relation to the grand and heroic conventions of Antarctic representation. An extended series of photographs of changing light in flat white space proposes an aesthetic of fragility rather than grandeur and an experience of Antarctica relevant to contemporary rather than historical relationships to place.
In a discussion of her Antarctic projects Noble will reflect on how photography informs our relationships to place. In addition she will talk about her current role as Australia and New Zealand curator for the 2013 Photoquai Biennale and some of the challenges for contemporary documentary photography now.
Anne Noble is Professor of Fine Arts (Photography) at Massey University, Wellington, New Zealand. She is one of New Zealand's most respected photographers. Her work is widely exhibited internationally in the United States, Spain, Germany, France and Australia and is held in numerous international collections. In 2003 she was awarded the Order of Merit for services to photography in New Zealand.
