Landscape Architecture Australia August 2019

If you haven’t bought the book, “Grassland in Transition”, you can check out an excerpt in the Landscape Architecture Australia magazine August 2019 (Issue 163) . Photographs from the “Grassy Woodlands” series, along with text by Sue McIntyre, feature in their “Field Trip” series. The theme for this issue is biodiversity. If you missed seeing Janet Laurence’s recent retrospective exhibition at the Museum of Contemporary Art (Sydney), you can read a review in this issue too!

The Western Humanities Review Spring 2018, Volume 72.1 features photographs from the “Grassy Woodlands” series, and text about my collaborative method with ecologist Dr Sue McIntyre. A central feature of this issue is a substantial portfolio of Australian prose poetry, providing a very fine glimpse into the breadth of Australian writing.

Michael Mejia in his Editor’s Note writes, “Further to articulating the notion of the close look in this issue is the accompanying portfolio of photographs by Australian artist Carolyn Young, whose work performs a scientifically-informed inquiry into the long-term effects of European colonization on eastern Australian grasslands, the overwriting of millennia of indigenous stewardship. Young’s work, elegantly engaging both the intimate and the objective, is as interested in how we see as in what is seen, keeping us mindful of the impressions of bodies, past and present, on her still lifes and landscapes.”
