Jane Lydon’s meticulous investigation of the role of photography in the . a welcome entrant into the interdisciplinary arena of material culture study intersecting with photographic history.

Jane Lydon’s meticulous investigation of the role of photography in the cross-cultural engagement that took place at Coranderrk from the mid-nineteenth century to the early twentieth century unfolds with a narrative drive. The community at Coranderrk comes alive. It clears a path through a landscape of nostalgia littered with the pictorial histories and genres of illustrated then-and-now documentation.

Publisher's Description. An indigenous reservation in the colony of Victoria, the Coranderrk Aboriginal Station was a major site of cross-cultural contact in late-nineteenth and ury Australia. Coranderrk was located just outside Melbourne, and from its opening in 1860s the colonial government commissioned many photographs of its Aboriginal residents. The photographs taken at Coranderrk Station circulated across the western world; they were mounted in exhibition displays and classified among other ethnographic data within museum collections.

Academic journal article Australian Aboriginal Studies. The book is obviously aimed at a select band of fellow travellers, but beneath the layers of jargon Jane Lydon reveals glimpses of a fascinating story. Coranderrk, an Aboriginal station near Melbourne which was established in 1863, is the focus of Lydon's attentions. More correctly, it is the way in which the residents-made up of various groups forming the Kulin nations-were portrayed through the medium of photography, and how at different stages they influenced and indeed used the images for their own political ends.

Photos of Indigenous Australians. The cluttered cabinets of curiosities still display the objects in their original typological groupings at the Pitt Rivers Museum at Oxford University. The Pitt Rivers Museum is a holy grail for anthropologists. It was founded in 1884 by General Augustus Henry Lane Fox Pitt Rivers to house his donated collection. It was built as an annex to the Natural History Museum. To descend into the dimly lit and packed Pitt Rivers Museum, I had to first walk under the airy and bright vaulted ceiling and past the towering dinosaur skeletons of the Natural History Museum.

An indigenous reservation in the colony of Victoria, Australia, the Coranderrk Aboriginal Station was a major site of cross-cultural contact the mid-nineteenth century and early twentieth. Coranderrk was located just outside Melbourne, and from its opening in the 1860s the colonial government commissioned many photographs of its Aboriginal residents. The photographs taken at Coranderrk Station circulated across the western world; they were mounted in exhibition displays and classified among other ethnographic “data” within museum collections. The immense Coranderrk photographic archive is the subject of this detailed, richly illustrated examination of the role of visual imagery in the colonial project. Offering close readings of the photographs in the context of Australian history and nineteenth- and early-twentieth-century photographic practice, Jane Lydon reveals how western society came to understand Aboriginal people through these images. At the same time, she demonstrates that the photos were not solely a tool of colonial exploitation. The residents of Coranderrk had a sophisticated understanding of how they were portrayed, and they became adept at manipulating their representations.

Lydon shows how the photographic portrayals of the Aboriginal residents of Coranderrk changed over time, reflecting various ideas of the colonial mission—from humanitarianism to control to assimilation. In the early twentieth century, the images were used on stereotypical postcards circulated among the white population, showing what appeared to be compliant, transformed Aboriginal subjects. The station closed in 1924 and disappeared from public view until it was rediscovered by scholars years later. Aboriginal Australians purchased the station in 1998, and, as Lydon describes, today they are using the Coranderrk photographic archive in new ways, to identify family members and tell stories of their own.
