Historically the concept of the journey has been explored throughout artistic endeavours from Homerʼs Odyssey to Jack Kerouacʼs personal pilgrimage across the American landscape to Paul Gauguin’s paintings in Tahiti. From rambling texts that describe the historical aspects of a place or images that reveal a personal and emotional journey, this concept is a familiar territory for artists. Away we go brings together five photographers from Australia and New Zealand to examine the influence of this history and the importance that the journey still has on contemporary photographic practices today.
