Where's the Scholarship?

There are far more involved critical discussions of the work and influence of Curtis such as Mick Gidley's numerous publications that are not represented. The indigenous voice must be informed if it is to have relevance and without the scholarship standards that are expected, this is an unfair attempt to "talk back" to Curtis's legacy.

We did keep the discussion of Curtis and his life/history to a minimum both because it's been done well before (by Gidley as you suggest) as well as to foreground the different kinds of work we're doing here. We aren't interested in writing a life of Curtis, we'd like the work to focus instead on the people who appear in and are connected to the images. That work is not here yet, but we'd like it to be.Erik Loyerf862727c4b34febd6a0341bffd27f168a35aa637
