Shane Hulbert’s photographic practice acknowledges landscape as a relational space between people, culture and nature. Through a range of photographic devices and processes he images the complexity of the Australian landscape and its connection to place, myth and history.

Import/Export explores the collective national identity through the popular iconography and myths that celebrates and defines Australian cultural identity. Featuring a combination of location, personality and ‘larakin’ humour, the photographs consider ways in which the idea of Australia is encapsulated in foreign locations, while concurrently responding to the evolving assimilation of imported cultural icons and their relationship to contemporary Australia.

The images present a collective national identity through distinct and now popular representations that illustrates a fascination with the connections between place, history and culture.
