Oculi: Terra Australis Incognita Exhibition

Acclaimed contemporary photographers challenge the way we view our country.


The notion, Terra Australis Incognita (which translates as ‘unknown land of the south’) stems from a time when the unknown could only be explained through the imaginary. Terra Australis Incognita focuses on each Oculi photographer’s individual perspective and personal viewpoint. Depicting Australia in a contemporary light, the images challenge stereotypical views.

The strong visual style of the Oculi collective has been highly influential within contemporary Australian photography and has changed the conventions of photojournalism in Australia.

Terra Australis Incognita is an exhibition that challenges notions of nationality, place and cultural belonging.

“This work often scratches beneath the surface of the image one would initially think of when visualising Australia.” - Andrew Quilty

“A vision of Australia which is empathetic and humorous, interpretative and defiant, questioning and critical.” - Donna Bailey

"Social documentary in Australia is historically the province of the young, independent freelance photographers and during this decade Oculi’s photojournalists have energetically documented important Australian issues for both today’s press and for future posterity - to considerable acclaim. This exhibition will be particularly important historically speaking.” - Robert McFarlane, Photographer and critic

Warning: One photo within the exhibition contains nudity.
