Australia’s Greatest Hits is a solo exhibition by Australian photographer Joel Wynn Rees, which featured a series of works taken on a journey through the North-West of the country.
Originally from Broome, Rees returned to re-connect with landscapes and people that continue to inspire his practice. The photographs explore representations of Australian identity and seek to uncover a unique vision of the characters and life found in the isolated terrain of the outback. The resulting artworks aim to provide an authentic account of their environs, whilst also probing often stereotypical concepts about the ‘Australian experience.’
