Artist Dennis Golding discusses his work Back Home From Home showing as part of the 2022 National Photography Prize at the Murray Art Museum Albury.
The National Photography Prize brought together twelve artists from across Australia who challenged and extended photographic language and techniques.
In Back Home From Home, Golding holds a white cast reproduction of a Victorian fence in position of a shield. The fence represents those of Redfern, the inner-city Sydney neighbourhood that Golding’s family moved to in 1974, and where Golding was born and raised.
The work shows Golding gesturing to his family’s return to Country. He is photographed standing between his grandparent’s hometowns of Moree and Collarenebri
